    Dear Friend,

    Choosing optional is highly personal choice which can be differ from person to person.
    It is not necessary that the optional subject I like, will also be liked by you.
    You need to research on your own in order to get the idea about the various optionals and their syllabus.
    Public Administration is one of the famous subjects among IAS aspirants but it does not mean that you should opt it blindly.
    Perhaps there are many other subjects which you could prefer the most.
    You can choose the subject relating to your education background.
    Like Commerce Graduate candidate can opt for Commerce or Management subjects for his optionals.
    Similarly you have to ask yourself whether the particular subject will benefit you in your preparation, whether you can understand it or not etc.
    Some of the combinations which candidate opt for are:
    Public Administration - Sociology
    Sociology - Political Science
    Public Administration - Phsychology
    Public Administration - Indian History
    etc.

    I have attached the list of optional subject available :


    List of Optional Subject Combination not allowed by UPSC:
    >Political Science & International Relations and Public Administration
    >Commerce & Accountancy and Management
    >Anthropology and Sociology
    >Mathematics and Statistics
    >Agriculture and Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science
    >Management and Public Administration
    >Of the Engineering subjects, viz., Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering–not more than one subject
    >Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science and Medical Science

    Hope it helps you out in your decision.

    All the best.

    Regards.
