Since you've already chosen Indo-Pak History, history of USA is not an option as you can only pick one subject from that group. Out of the subjects you have mentioned, I would suggest Gender studies purely because I recently prepared for it for the upcoming exams and it was an interesting subject to cover. At the end of the day, it depends entirely on your inclination and interest. I personally don't believe much in scoring trends. A subject is scoring only if YOU make it scoring. You should look through the courses of the mentioned subjects and chose the one that interests you the most and appeals to your academic background. You'll have to put hours into the preparation anyway, why not enjoy it and use this as an opportunity to learn something new and worthwhile?

Anyway I wish you the very best of luck!

Default How to select optional subjects?

Choosing an optional subject can make or break your CSS right before the start. most people choose the wrong optional subjects that are not even close to their interests and hobbies. They follow other people's advice or scoring trend and because of that, they are not able to pass the CSS exam.

Instead of this, you must believe in yourself what are your abilities? what are you good at? what did you read in your spare time? which topics or subjects are your favorites? which subjects do you want to learn in the future?

The most important thing is the interest. If you have an interest in a subject then you will love to read you want to get in the details, it will be fun for you, and also you will keep yourself motivated. You will not be studying just for the exam but also for knowledge.

Here are the following aspects that you must consider before finalizing the optional subjects

Educational background:
The best thing you can do while selecting the optional subjects is to study for educational background subjects. Subjects in which you were interested, you have studied before, subjects you have an idea of and subjects you want to study in your future.

These subjects are perfect for you because you have an idea about the subjects, you know the basics and if you know the basics. You can learn advanced things and if you have taken examination then you know the important aspects of the subjects and you have an idea how to solve questions regarding the subject

Keep this thing in mind never ever choose a subject that you are not interested in because it will not only waste your time but also you will be facing a hard time in studying the subject and passing the exam.

Yes, there are some subjects that not made for everyone. If you think that you are not capable of studying the subject or understanding then leave it to. Choose that subject that you are good at that is easily understandable and you believe in yourself that you can obtain good marks in the subject.

Be on the safe side:
If you are still confused then I would recommend you to choose the subjects that are easy. I mean subject which gives you the freedom to express your own general opinion. Subjects that are not technical you must use those objects that give you freedom of speech so that if you are not able to remember some references then you can elaborate it and give your own opinion.

These subjects include sociology, journalism etc
