It is evident from the above data that there is no fixed trend for the number of questions from static GK or current affairs. This year, AILET  had only a few questions on static GK and nearly 85% questions on current affairs. Whereas, AILET 2017 & 2018 had almost the same number of static and current GK questions. Therefore, we recommend a balanced preparation strategy, allocating equal time and energy to both static GK and current affairs.
