Answer:  Because most of the questions in Civil Services Examinations are directly or indirectly related to Current Affairs portion. Without a good knowledge of Current Affairs, it’s almost impossible for anyone to crack Civil Services Examinations. Moreover, in the Mains examination of Civil Services where poor marks in GS papers can affect the overall ranking of the candidates, one has to adopt a good strategy to achieve success in IAS (Civil Services) examinations.
