There are two reasons for the repetition
1. Almost the complete syllabus has been touched in these Questions , and almost all the questions related to important topics like Indian Independence movement have been asked . From where they will bring the new Questions ?
2. While making the question they are asked to prepare questions which can be solved by general graduates irrespective of their graduation stream . So they are bound and can not ask deep rooted tough questions [ which only a graduate in that stream can answer] . And Hence they repeat Questions which contain key words like Rowlatt act , Pitts India Act , ozone depletion , Greenhouse gases , etc
