    Public administration might be the perfect subject for you as it would not only help you to know the governance of the union but also score maximum marks.
    History is also a good choice.

    Hello,
    If you want to appear in IAS exams then you can taken Arts subjects and commerce subjects. If you take Arts subjects then you can take sociology, Psychology, History, Political Science.

    Arts subjects are as comfortable than science for all. You can take these subjects for mains, but you should have good writing skill.

    History subjects not needs more writing skills, so you can take it in one option.

    Wish you all the best,

    you can choose MATHEMATICS & HISTORY/GEOGRAPHY/PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION.
    these will be easier for you to prepare.
    but choosing optional subjects are based on one's interest & knowledge in that particular subject.
