Does Google Drive have version control features? If so which one is better Subversion or Google Drive? Thanks in advance.

I do not believe Google Drive has version control. AFAIK, that's not at all the purpose of it.

i dont use it personally, but there are tons of git and svn clients on source forge

What do you mean by 'git and svn clients'? There is already an official client for each of both git and subversion, called 'git' and 'subversion', respectively.

well, at least there were. one comes to mind like turtle svn, but i cant seem to find it on source forge anymore

It's TortoiseSVN, and they have clients for git and mercurial as well. I wouldn't recommend subversion these days. It was good compared to CVS but git and mercurial are much faster.

One good graphic client for GIT that I have found and use daily is SourceTree which is free.
It is great for beginners just getting the hang of pushing/pulling, commits, adds, branching, ect. and also have some nice advance features for more advanced users.
It was made by the one of the original creators of Orge3D Steve Streeting and it works with Mercurial and Git.
I would definitely recommend checking it out.

I heard Subversion is great for beginners and students. Since I haven't used a version control before I thought I would give that one a go.
@naraku points that choosing subversion would be a bad idea. Is Git that much better for a beginner? or does it not matter?

Neither of them are really that hard to learn. Just take a hour or two to get familiar with one and you should be fine. It is not like learning a programming language or anything.
That said subversion is dying rapidly and wouldn't be a good idea to start using it in my opinion. I would go with Git or Mercurial which provide a better version of Source Control then subversion does and are going strong and won't be gone anytime soon.
Edit: Here is a post that I think describes why not to use subversion pretty nicely
(Though a warning this article is a couple years old and most of the con's against Git have been fixed)
But ultimately the choice is up to you. Choose what you feel most comfortable with but do some research first.

does Git require command line interaction?
