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.

396 Comments on “[Banking] IBPS PO/MT Topicwise question paper for 2014: GA, Maths, DI, English, Reasoning & Computer”

  1. I also attended the exam on the afternoon of the 18th.

    I first did english, my strong suit- All normal questions but 2 comprehensions. The second and the shorter comprehension was on the the effects of low interest rates in the developed countries of Europe. This was in my opinion extremely difficult. Anyway, I answered 38 questions in the english section. There were 10 questions each for each passage. The other questions in this section was to replace the bold lettered words of a sentence with the correct option and fill in the blanks with the correct words (10). Then 5 question regarding paragraph arrangement was given. This was made more critical because the first sentence was given and marked as “1” so you had to arrange the last 6 sentences. But the problem was when they asked question they asked including all the seven statements. This I came to know when they asked – “what is the last (seventh) statement”? So If they asked the second statement you have to answer the first statement that you arranged. It took me 30 mins to do the english section.

    For the next 20 mins I did GK and computer. I answered 14 of computer and 24 of GK. I think these two sections were quite tough, tougher than last year perhaps. The people above have given a good survey of the questions in these two sections. The only question I could add is a really simple question- What is a synagogue?- A Jew’s house of prayer. After my ias prelims debacle I learned to be careful regarding negative markings.

    Then for the next forty minutes I did quant- I wanted to maximise my marks so I focused only on DI unfortunately the examiners knew this is what lots of people do so they made the quant question very long. The first quant problem is similar to the last RBI grade b officer question- it is regarding the population of the 6 village and 1 city. This is a basic percentage and ratio and average sum as you will need to deal with finding the number of males and females in the cities. The second series dealt with a pie chart where total number of laptops are 54000 and they are sold by 5 or 6 different stores and the laptops are of 3 companies- samsung, lenovo and dell. In another chart the ratio of these three companies in each store is given. These two DI questions were extremely lengthy. Then there was a bar graph which was easy but by then I could do only 2 of those. I could manage to do only 13 questions in this section.

    Finally, at the end I did reasoning. There was a cause and effect question. Then there were 5 question where a scenario of a cosmetic company producing harmful products for their european customers were given and you are asked different questions on what weakens the argument, what strengthens the argument. Why do you think they are doing this etc. Then there was an input output question. Also a question where 8 people were sitting in a table 4 people in the middle and 4 people in the corner. Then there was another question regarding people sitting in parallel straight line facing each other. There was also 5 questions regarding whether info in statement 1 was sufficient or 2 was sufficient or both are required to answer the question or neither is sufficient. Then they gave this situation where 7 actor friends were auditioning for 7 different Shakespearean plays on seven different dates and you have to arrange them accordingly. Lastly: those question where you have to make venn diagrams- all soldiers are kings, all kings are not ministers etc etc. The twist this time was that you have to answer the conclusion which definitely will not follow, don’t worry this makes it far more easier. I answered 20 in reasoning.

    My total answered questions were 109. I think my problem area is quant where I could manage only 13. The cut off should be much higher than last years but whether it will go as high as 2012 is doubtful. I had started giving competitive exams since the last IBPS po exam (2013) and as someone who is a history student and hates maths, I would also not be able to do the maths. At least this time I could do 13 by following Mrunal bhai’s suggestion to do Rajesh verma. It is a good start but it still needs more practice.

    1. Dude! Could you pls tell the title of that quant book written by Rajesh Verma?

English- Passage was ohh my gosh extremely technical even raghuram rajan would find it difficult, other than passage things were OK one can attempt.
    GS was moderate one who is reading newspaper daily can attempt 70% without any problem. Not a single question from budget, RBI bi monthly policy etc shit I was dependent on that.

    Computer- easy anyone who is having a system in house it’s a ha ha ha….easily 15 can be answered.

    Quantative Aptitude- Thought like calculator is allowed, but no …….nothing is difficult concept wise basic only but calculations were Muhhhah…..Dimag k dahi ho jayega calculations m. Don’t panic if 3 4 answers don’t match or come true other wise game over 5 questions bhi nhi attempt kr payoge… Patience is the key.

    GS- 25 is a decent attempt.

    Computer – 12 .

    English- 22 .

    Reasoning – 22.

    Maths- 12 .

    iv) Question on simple interest, percentage, profit and loss, time and work
    v) Questions on solving quadratic equations in x and y variables separately and then comparing the values of X and Y ( 5 to 6 questions)
    My attempt 21/50
    REASONING
    i) 2 Arrangements questions were tough ( related 5 to 6 qs, I didn’t attempted. Please attempt this part only if you have done enough practice as it consumes time and can frustrate you if you are not able to solve after spending time)
    ii) Syllgolisms (5 questions; as I wasn’t in good touch I was having doubt so please prepare these part who have exam next)
    iii) Inequalitys given and you have to find which statement will follow( 5 questions I find them average.eg (A>C>B≥d≤g..then statements are given…)
    iv) Directions question ( 2or 3)
    My attempt was 20/50
    About Myself: I have not practiced much since I was busy with other stuffs..
    Total Attempt 102/200..(accuracy 75 -80 percent)
    Some Wisdom TIPS : Follow the strategy I have followed attempt (GA & computer) 60 Qs in one go in first 20 mins. Then attempt 15 each of other sections (select sections as per your wisdom). After this whatever time is remaining try to reach the 20 marks in all the sections or complete the section which you find easier.
    Also please read all the comments and questions of general awareness and computer, some qs may repeat and are being repeated.
    If you read pratiyogita darpan latest one have IBPS exam mock paper do that it has one qs of coding which came in the exam. Prepare it..
    All the best for SBI associate PO( those who are over with IBPS. Start working on your weaknesses and do lot of test papers….)

    If I am able to recall other questions I will surely be updating by tomorrow

  13. Exam – 18/10/2014 (morning shift)

    First of all I want to warn those whose exam is going to be on 1st and 2nd Nov. PLEASE prepare everything because nobody knows what IBPS going to do.ie which section is tough or which section is going to be easy.
    Second as i noticed after reading post of others. . . IF YOU HAVE EXAM IN 2nd SHIFT OF ANY OF THESE DAYS THEN TRY TO GET INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT ASKED IN 1st SHIFT ATLEAST IN “GA” BECAUSE 1st & 2nd SHIFT QUESTION MATCHES.

    THIRD and most important that paper is not tough as said by other, rather I say paper is medium, if you solved enough practice test then you are going to clear it. Just do one thing that try to solve your practice paper in 100 min. Then only you can think to attempt 100 or above questions.

    My attempts
    G.A- 21( This is my best section but 18th GA was bit more tough then usual accuracy- 95%)
    Reso- 22 (90% accuracy) ( devote time wisely in this section)
    Qant- 12 ( Most weak . . still good for me. . 99% accuracy)
    Eng- 26 ( I never do eng other then practice test. . did not solved any passage, still managed 95% accuracy) ( IF you find this section weak for you then practice more. . solve arrangement carefully)
    Comp- 19( IDK what to say about this section . . . while solving this section i felt,is IBPS cracking jokes in this section !!!)
    Overall – 100 ( after submitting i was bit surprised that i solved 100 !!!
    Finally I say that IF I practiced more i could able to solve more with more accuracy.

    1. Yr 100 attempt main interview call aa jayegi? maine bhi 100 hi kiye hain

      1. depend on correctness

      2. i also did 100 was that sufficient ? what can be done else except hope?
