Q. Which of the following does a book always has?

A. Contents
B. Photos
C. Chapters
D. Pages

Ans: Usually, a good book always has the above-mentioned options. But here you need to absolutely make sure that the truth is presented. Thus, we will go one by one option and show how the options can be negated.

A good book always has contents but there is no surety that every book should have content. Some books may or may not have content. For option B i.e. photos, this is also not a necessary requirement in a book. Some books have photos some doesn’t. In the same way, option C can also be negated. Because sometimes books do not have chapters. Thus, the only option is D. And every book must have pages. That is the absolutely necessary requirement for any book.
