Default Test your General Knowledge/Awareness

This thread is meant for posting General Knowledge/Awareness questions & answers. I'll try to regularly contribute some questions & answers related to day-to-day General Knowledge and some stuff from static G.K. also. This will act as a good source of preparation for all those exams like SNAP, IRMA etc. where general knowledge of a candidate is being also tested.
