well these topics show that a comprehensive study of both our compulsory and optional subjects should help us attmpt atleast some of the topics confidently,,,the paper setter seldom gives the topics in a hackneyed text book style,,,topics are easier at the face value, yet are given in a round about manner only to judge our exact comprehension of the topic... for example the topic on "Global warming " this year was given to elicit a different view ,,it was about if its really human beings who are contributing towards the environmental degradation or its something else, and in the first place the writer was to judge the veracity of the claims by the world environmental, bodies,like IPCC and GreenPeace, if global warming is really there..... last year it was about "global warming and future of humanity" and the content of that essay should have been a lot different from this one, and its this subtle misunderstanding of meaning due to which people often can't perform well, including me.....this is wat i believe, may b im wrong.... wat you people say?

Though the topics seem easy yet they need a lot of brainstorming ,most of the topics are full of controversies and of course need supporting ideas. And i agree with you naveed bhai ,one should look into the topic before attempting it.The topic on global warming is not that general , it is global warming,fact or fiction.So that needs a different approach.
