    The subject chosen for optionals is to be considered very carefully as they help to score more in the exam.So need to check out your details of engineering that which subject you feel easy and in which you can score more.

    Also there are other options:

    1.Agriculture
    2.Botany
    3.Zoology
    3.Political science..etc
