All 150 questions are given in the beginning, and you can attempt any section at any time. There is individual cut-off in each section. Negative marking 0.25 marks for each wrong answer.
Q1-15: Comprehension, Antonyms, Synonyms There is a big paragraph (one full page) about regularization of banking acts, etc.
Q1-9 are based on the content of the paragraph.
Q10-12 are Antonyms for some words appeared in the paragraph.
Q13-15 are Synonyms for some words appeared in the paragraph.
Q16-20 (Incomplete Paragraph about Development and Education in Punjab and U.P. was given) In these questions, we need to insert the appropriate word from the options given.
Q21-25: (Ordering sentences in a paragraph) There are 5 Sentences given. They have asked for the correct sequence of those sentences. For example the asked question is which sentence is 2nd? 3rd? etc.
Q26-35: (Sentence improvement) There are 10 sentences. A part of the sentence is in bold part. From the options, we need to improve the meaning of the sentence.
Q36-45: (Identifying error in the sentence) Each Sentence was broken in to 5 parts. We need to find out which portion is having error. Sorry I forgot the other 5 questions.
Except the questions 1-9, I answered all confidently.
Conclusion: Practice Comprehension more, because reading the paragraph itself will take10-15 min. Then answering questions is too difficult.
So, go for other questions which are relatively simple and you feel comfortable.
Quantitative Aptitude: ( R.S.Agrawal level, but time is very crucial) I am giving you, the topics covered.
1.Compound interest (1q)
There are 3 Tables and each table comprises of 5 questions.
4.Series Completion (5q)
5.Squre root (1q)
6. Trains (1q)
Actually I overlooked the other 7 questions, because I have answered only 25 in 30 min. Then I moved to other section. There is no time to see any question 2nd time. So, do it right first confidently. Some questions are (none of these) options type. So doing confidently first time is important.
Do not check your calculation if u get none as your answer. Because they will test confidence by putting none option.
Conclusion: Do all questions in R.S.Agrawal atleast once to get confidence. Emphasize more on DI, Probability. Questions are simple but managing time is imp.
