    Selecting optional subjects depends on your interest.
    Many optional subjects like Geography, History, Public Administration, Politics, Sociology, Psychology and some other subjects.
    Among these geography, public administration and sociology are easy subjects when compared to other subjects and material can be easily available.

    All the best.
