I am at zero level what should i read for preliminary exam except current affairs gk books..?

Current Affairs and General Knowledge books will help you in updating knowledge but will not suffice the purpose. For width and depth of information that General Studies requires, it is better to have conceptual clarity and analytical ability.

For this purpose, NCERT Books will help you in laying a strong foundation and standard text-books along with newspaper/magazines reading will help you in an effective preparation.

Looking at the syllabus and previous years’ papers, it is better to prepare for General Studies with Main Examination focus with which major portion of Preliminary Examination Paper I gets prepared automatically.

For Paper II, learn some Mathematical/Reasoning/Linguistic skills. Practice is the key to success.
