CBSE Class 12 Biology Board Exam 2020: Important diagrams from which questions are expected

Important diagrams for CBSE Class 12 Biology Board Exam 2020 are available here. Questions based on diagrams (given in Class 12 Biology NCERT textbooks) have been frequently asked in board exams, every year. This year, CBSE Class 12 Biology Board Exam 2020 is scheduled to be held on 14th March 2020

If you will go through latest Class 12 Biology Sample Paper (issued by CBSE), then you will find many questions given in this paper are based on diagram and graphs given in NCERT textbooks.
