They say that it is the little drops of water that make a mighty ocean. Thus, if you are somebody who is looking forward to scoring more than 90 and perhaps even top the upcoming board exams, you cannot ignore the one mark questions. Unless and until you score well in these you cannot dream of scoring well overall.

In order to aid the preparation level of the students who will be appearing for the board exams in a matter of days now, we have carefully compiled a list of important one mark mathematics questions. Thus, if you are someone who is appearing for your class 10 board exams later this month, here is a list of questions that you must be thorough with.
