EXAM PATTERN:

sbi po pre pattern

Lets start with the topics and the level of the exam first. 

English :- Easy: 30 Questions

i) Reading Comprehension – 10 Questions – ( world bank report related to South Africa) – Synonyms/Antonyms were asked.
ii) Cloze Test – 10  Questions –  Based on air pollution in China

THE capital’s “airpocalypse”, the choking smog that descended on Beijing in the winter of 2012-13, galvanised public opinion and SPOOKED the government. The strange thing is, though, that information about air pollution—how extensive it is, how much damage it does—has long been sketchy, BASED mostly on satellite data or computer models. Until now.

RESPONDING to the outcry, the government set up a national air-reporting system which now has almost 1,000 monitoring stations, pumping out hourly reports on six pollutants, including sulphur dioxide, ozone and (the main CULPRIT) particulate matter less than 2.5 microns in diameter, or PM2.5. These are tiny particles which lodge in the lungs and CAUSE respiratory disease. The six are the main cause of local pollution but have little to do with climate change, since they do not include carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas. Scientists from Berkeley Earth, a not-for-profit foundation in America, have TRAWLED through this recent cloud of data for the four months to early August 2014, sieved out the bits that are manifestly wrong (readings where the dial seems to be stuck, for instance) and emerged with the most detailed and up-to-date picture of Chinese air pollution so far.

Pollution is sky-high EVERYWHERE in China. Some 83% of Chinese are EXPOSED to air that, in America, would be deemed by the Environmental Protection Agency either to be unhealthy or unhealthy for sensitive groups. Almost half the population of China experiences levels of PM2.5 that are ABOVE America’s highest threshold. That is even WORSE than the satellite data had suggested.

    • Godzilla return

      w=11
      left se third letter
      + for 4 letter word
      & for 5 letter word
      same krte jao

    • 〰ϻίsђtί〰

      In coded language
      1st term represents the code of the 1st letter
      2nd term represents the no of letters
      3rd term represents the 3rd digit of the letter
      3 digits – ellipse with a slash mark
      4 digits – ‘+’
      5 digits – ‘ $’
      6 digits – ‘ ÷’
      For 1st term of the coded language
      B – 16
      C – 17
      D – 18
      L – 26
      P – 4
      R – 6
      T – 8
      W – 11
      So ‘ Paint ‘ =
      P = 4
      No of digits – 5 – $
      Third letter of paint = I
      = 4$I
      Thnx @DW

    Four family members P, Q, R and S are going to the different Mall viz;
    Wave, DLF, Ambience and Sahara (not neccesarily in the same order), for
    the shopping of different items on the same day viz; Saree, Jewellery,
    Jeans, Gown but not necessarily in the same order, at different time
    which are 9am, 12pm, 10am and 11am (not necessarily in the same order).
    S
    is going to just after when another member is going to WAVE, which is
    going just after the member who is going for the shopping of Saree. The
    member, who is going to SAHARA, is going at least two hours later than
    Q. The member, who is going to AMBIENCE, is going just after the member
    who is going for the shopping of Gown, who is going just after P. The
    definite information which was given about three among four was: R, the
    one who is going for the shopping of Jewellery and the one who is going
    at 11am.
