Foreword
It is happy to inform you, that the Government of Andhra Pradesh issued orders
to start Intermediate course in Open Distance Learning mode from the academic year
2010-11- G.O. Ms. No. 170 Higher Education (I.E. II) Dept., dt: 04.09.2012. I
congratulate all the learners enrolled in this course. This enrolled Intermediate (APOSS)
course started by APOSS is equivalent to the Intermediate course offered by Board of
Intermediate Education, Andhra Pradesh in regular mode. It is the best opportunity for
the candidates, those who could not complete Intermediate course in regular mode.
This study material was prepared by experienced Lecturers and Professors
according to syllabus. All the questions and answers were prepared for easy
understanding of learners and used English terminology wherever necessary. Simple
and vernacular language was used in the preparation of this material. Any additions
and changes related to this study material are invited.
With best wishes
