The Nobel Prize is certainly not a solitary prize, however five separate prizes that are, as indicated by Alfred Nobel’s will, given “to the individuals who, during the previous year, have presented the best advantage to mankind”. Nobel Prizes are granted in the follow classes: Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, and Peace (Nobel called it “association among countries”).
In 1968, a 6th prize was set up in the field of Economic Sciences; be that as it may, it isn’t viewed as a “Nobel Prize” yet a “Nobel Memorial Prize”.
