Very good to hear from a Born Aspirant Of IAS

Selecting optional should be a very simple issue for you. If not, I will make it easy for you.

As you have graduated in your Pharmacy. you can select a optional subject which is related to medical field here are the optionals which are related to medical field that you can select into.
>>Animal Husbandry & Vetinary Science
>>Anthropology
>>Botany
>>Medical Science
>>Psychology

These are the optional subjects which are related to your field but not completely equal to your graduation subjects.

As you have selected your pharmacy as graduation subject with interest you may also select these subjects as your optional subjects but there is no compulsion to select only these you can also select any of the pre defined list of optional subjects.

even if they are not of your field you can select them with your inner interest.

while selecting for optional subjects one more thing to be considered apart from your interest in that subject is the availability of books in your area. we can't assume that all the optional subject books will be available equally in the market.
So take care of availability of the books.

My suggestion to you is take a Medical related subject from above list and take another general subject like Public administration or Psychology which will not only help you to get marks in mains exam but also help you in your field work as IAS officer.

All the best for your selection

Regards
