In this article, we have presented a set of 20 questions based on Indian medieval period and dynasty. We have observed that the syllabus of general knowledge is very vast for every  topic and it is not possible to cover all the facts. Same exists for History because history is divided into many parts i.e. Pre-History, Medieval History, Modern History, Revolutions, Freedom fights and mutinies, etc. Therefore, better way to practice is to solve maximum practice sets on general knowledge.
