Prologue

  • IBPS had conducted online examinations for the post of Probationary officers/Management trainees throughout this October & November 2014.
  • Based on the exam experience shared by the players, I have consolidated all the questions asked in different shifts and divided them section-wise so it will help all the future aspirants who are planning to attempt IBPS PO/MT in 2015.
  • First and most important thing is to understand the exam-pattern: what type of questions are asked and from which book/newspaper? Then prepare accordingly. For example- SSC requires different approach than IBPS. CSAT requires different approach than IBPS and so on.
  • if someone has cleared CSAT and he thinks IBPS will be a “pappu” exam, then he’ll be making a big mistake- same is true for the reverse case.
  • Anyways, IBPS PO/MT online exam consist of 200 questions (each right answer=1 mark, wrong=negative 0.25)which had to be answered in 2 hours.
  • There were five sections viz. Reasoning, English Language, Numerical Ability, General Awareness and Computer Knowledge.

#1.Reading Comprehension

Read the following passage and answer the questions below it. A few words are given in the bold form to help easy location while answering some questions.

The first of the Great Debates, between Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts and the incumbent Vice President Richard Nixon on September 26,1960, centered around domestic issues. The topic of the next debate, on October 7, was a clash over U.S. policy regarding two small islands off the Chinese coast, and on October 13, this controversy continued. On October 21, the final debate, the candidates focused on American/Cuban relations. Few of the 70 million viewers could have fathomed what this first-ever televised presidential debate augured, not only for this specific series of debates, but more importantly for the preeminent role the fledgling medium would play in the future of the political arena. A pallid Nixon arrived at the Chicago CBS studios after a gruelling day of campaigning. The previous August a knee infection had sidelined him. He was still twenty pounds underweight, and he perspired profusely in an ill-fitting shirt. Moreover, he declined makeup to burnish his hospital pallor. The freshly painted studio backdrop had dried to an ashen hue that obscured his matching suit. The Democratic contender by contrast exuded a robust glow after a month of campaigning in California. He had spent his day rehearsing potential questions and relaxing. An aide later admitted that he supplemented his natural glow with a smidge of makeup. He was fit, trim, and confident. Despite the remarkably similar agends and arguments of the Republican and the Democrat, TV viewers unequivocally believed Kennedy to be the victor – whereas people who had followed the debates on the radio held the opposite opinion. The age of TV had arrived, and the subsequent party shuffle proved the undeniable potency of television.

Q : The author is mainly concerned about which of the following?

  1. The debating styles of John Kennedy and Richard Nixon during the 1960 Great Debates
  2. The effect of television on the results of the 1960 Great Debates
  3. The health of Richard Nixon at the time of the 1960 Great Debates
  4. The number of television viewers who tuned in to the 1960 Great Debates
  5. None of the above

Q : According to the passage, which of the following was true of Richard Nixon?

  1. He had a five o’clock shadow during the first debate.
  2. He wore a brown suit during the first debate.
  3. He lost his job after the election.
  4. He warned of the impending Cuban crisis.
  5. None of the above

Q : In context of the above passage choose the word which is most similar in meaning to the given word: freshly

  1. Healthy
  2. Garnish
  3. Beautifully
  4. Recently
  5. None of the above

Q : In context of the above passage choose the word which is most opposite in meaning to the given word: burnish

  1. Brighten
  2. Glaze
  3. Dull
  4. Furbish
  5. None of the above

#2.Cloze test(Fill in the blanks)

Find out the appropriate words in the blanks of the following passage:

After a journey of over 660 million kilometres that took 10 months, India’s Mars Orbiter Mission has swept with effortless ease into orbit ___(1)__ the Red Planet, making this country the first to achieve such a feat in a maiden attempt. Probes despatched to Earth’s sibling planet over the last half a century have often run into trouble of one kind or another, with only less than half of those spacecraft ending the voyage successfully. Thus far, only the United States, the former Soviet Union and the European Space Agency have __(2)__ in doing so. India and its space agency, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), now proudly join their ranks. Although ISRO could draw on its experience with the lunar probe, Chandrayaan-1, __(3)__ six years back, the challenges involved in sending a spacecraft all the way to Mars are far greater. That includes propelling the spacecraft with __(4)__ velocity to escape Earth’s gravitational grasp, guiding it along the proper trajectory over vast distances, and then slowing it down sufficiently to go into orbit around that planet. The spacecraft had to be capable of operating autonomously as communication signals to and from ground __(5)__ could take minutes to reach it. All of this has gone remarkably smoothly, including the orbit insertion manoeuvre with the spacecraft’s main engine, which had lain idle for almost 300 days. It is a tribute to ISRO and the professionalism of its scientists and engineers that every minute detail for such a complex mission could be attended to in the course of a project completed in just one and a half years. India’s Mars effort __(6)__ Rs.460 crore, an economical price tag by Western standards.
