However, if you have spent some amount of time and got stuck, that means you have reached a point of taking a decision between 2 options for a puzzle-condition. Draw two diagrams or arrangements, based on each and proceed. But remember, anything more that 6-7 mins per set is not worth it. So, learn to stop and proceed with the next set at the earliest.

hidayathullah : Practice online mock tests and sectional tests


anwesha : IF THERE ARE 7 PEOPLE IN A CIRCULAR SITTING ARRANGEMENT,THERE ARE (7-1)!=6! WAY TO ARRANGE THEM TO SIT THERE,MY QUESTION IS WHY 6!,WHY NOT 7!
sibaprasad : For a linear arrangement there are starting point and ending point. but in circular arrangement there is no such think. For example, ABC, BCA, CAB are three different arrangement in linear case. But in circular all three are same arrangement, just you start reading from A or B or C. So, the all the 3 cases of liner arrangement will be considered as one single case. Similarly every n arrangement of linear arrangement will represent only 1 arrangement in circular arrangement. So, we divide n! by n and ans is (n-1)!


mum : I HAVE STARTED READING THE NEWSPAPER , BUT WHEN I COME ACROSS ANY DIFFICULT SENTENCE ,EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THE MEANING OF EACH WORD IN THAT SENTENCE, I CANNOT EXTRACT THE EXACT MEANING OR WHAT IS THE EXACT STORY/IDEA THAT IS BEING TOLD. IT MAINLY HAPPENS WHEN I AM READING ANY BUSINESS NEWS .. PLEASE GUIDE ME HOW TO IMPROVE ON THIS . WILL REGULAR READING HELP IN THE GRADUAL UNDERSTANDING OF SUCH COMPLEX ISSUES?
khasim : through thorough and consistant reading you can master it,but take time,u can write down the meaning of difficult words again and again so u can get good command over vocab,so that u can grasp the issues very quickly,in case of bussiness news first u should know about the terminology so u can understand it.


mum : I HAVE STARTED READING THE NEWSPAPER , BUT WHEN I COME ACROSS ANY DIFFICULT SENTENCE ,EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THE MEANING OF EACH WORD IN THAT SENTENCE, I CANNOT EXTRACT THE EXACT MEANING OR WHAT IS THE EXACT STORY/IDEA THAT IS BEING TOLD. IT MAINLY HAPPENS WHEN I AM READING ANY BUSINESS NEWS .. PLEASE GUIDE ME HOW TO IMPROVE ON THIS . WILL REGULAR READING HELP IN THE GRADUAL UNDERSTANDING OF SUCH COMPLEX ISSUES?
keerthana : Yes regular reading, in fact speaking, writing and listening to the language help most. Be a voracious reader, enjoy reading. We know our mother tongue well. How? By speaking in the language. Read a lot. Read editorials of newspapers, magazines like frontline and newspapers like economic times. Gradually you will begin to understand even difficult concepts.

Try to attempt the easier and doable questions first. This will improve your confidence levels and calm you down. The rest will then become smooth.


tvsa6a167 : SIR IN QUANS IT'S BETTER TO START WITH DI?

manojsethi : Welcome !!

manojsethi : There is no such strategy for fixing the time for each questions in each of the test areas. Just keep one point in mind that DO NOT LOOSE OUT ON THE EASY ONES>. Dont start with DI in quant and dont start with CR in LR


aditya : IM PRACTICING ONLINE MOCK TESTS, I NEED TO KNOW EXPECTED SECTIONAL CUTOFF FOR THIS YEAR AND TOTAL CUTOFF TOO IF AVAILABLE

So please think of things which you can control. I think that is your preparation level. Please do write online sectional tests and full length mock tests to improve.

tvsa6a167 : SIR IN ENGLISH SECTION WHICH TOPIC WE SHOULD GO STEP BY STEP IN EXAM?..THAT MEANS WHICH TOPIC WE SHOULD ATTEND FIRST AND MOVE ON?
sumita : Try the VA questions first, preferably the Cloze test, before moving on to RCs which are usually more time-consuming. Here, work out the easier ones first; usually vocab questions fall under this category. Then attempt Grammar questions. We usually recommend that FIBs be dealt with after Error identification / Phrase replacement questions, and Para jumbled questions be left for the end.


anwesha : WHEN I WAS APPLYING IN RRB CLERK,THERE WAS NO EXAM CENTER IN BANGALORE,ALL WAS IN KARNATAKA ONLY,FOR RRB PO WOULD I FACE THE SAME PROBLEM?

supratim : Its difficult to suggest you based on the 95 % assumption. We need to check your mock papers performance to suggest anything. Please visit our center and show your mock papers performance to a faculty member to get the right picture.


raj : @MANOJ:HOW TO MEMORIZE VOCABULARY?
keerthana : Vocab(words) cannot really be memorized unless learnt in a meaningful context. Read a lot. Enjoy reading rather than looking at individual words. gradually you will learn difficult words and their meanings too.


deepika : SIR THE PUZZLES THAT ARE ASKED IN THE EXAM WOULD BE OF THE SIMILAR LEVEL THAT ARE IN THE TESTS BECAUSE I AM TAKING A LOT OF TIME IN SOLVING THE ONES IN THE TESTS
manojsethi : Our tests are slightly more in diff level. Given the fact that the recently held SBI PO 2016 Main Exam was a real tough one, we have included all kinds of puzzles in our material. Answer the easy ones with in a set. Dont miss out on Deductions, Input Out Put, Data Sufficiency.


sizu : HELLO SIR , MY SPECIFIC QUESTION IS : AN URN CONTAINS A CERTAIN NUMBER OF BEADS WHICH ARE RED, BLUE AND YELLOW. THE NUMBER OF ARRANGEMENTS IN WHICH YELLOW BEADS CAN BE ARRANGED CIRCULARLY IS 19!/2 AND PROBABILITY OF SELECTING 2 BLUE BEADS RANDOMLY IS 10/59. THE NUMBER OF RED BEADS IN THE URN IS 15. HOW MANY BEADS ARE THERE IN THE URN ?
praveen : Total beads should be 60. From first info total Yellow beads are 20, Red are given as 15 now if we will assume Blue beads as 'n' then nC2/ 35+nC2 =10/59. So n=25. So total beads = 20+15+25 =60.


manu : IN ENGLISH SECTION WHICH QUESTIONS SHOULD TO ATTEMPT FIRST?
sumita : It is always advisable to start with the CLoze test passage. RCs come after this. RC passages have vocab questions which are generally quite easy ones as most of them ask you the contextual meaning which is not too difficult to discern. Then try the other simpler questions from passages, and move on to Grammar ones next. From the remaining ones, FIBs are considered better scorers than PFQs.


roy : HELO SIR , NOW I AM PURSUING BTECH FINAL YEAR, CAN I APPLY FOR BANK PO POST

I HAVE TO MANUALLY CHECK EACH MOCK TEST THE TOPIC OF THE QUESTIONS WHICH I ANSWERED CORRECT. FOR EX: SYLLOGISM 4 CORRECT, PERCENTAGE 2 CORRECT, DI 5 CORRECT.
manojsethi : Actually this kind of testing needs to be done when you take the Online Sectional Practice Tests ( topic wise).


khusbu : SIR .HOW TO IMPROVE ENGLISH?
sumita : The best way to do this is to read a lot! Try to converse in English too, and don't be scared to commit errors. Look up the meanings of unfamiliar words in the dictionary, and try to remember them in context. Try not to translate from your mother tongue so as to avoid such errors. Learn sentences, and not merely words. It is meaningless to know words if you can't use them in a sentence. Practice both reading and writing, while not compromising on speaking and listening. A daily reading of leading newspapers and magazines and journals, watching the English news on TV, are some of the ways whihc will help you improve upon your communication skills generally .


john : WHAT OTHER BANKS /INSURANCES SHOULD I APPLY FOR? OTHER THAN THE ONES DONE WITH.

raj : IDEALLY WHAT IS NUMBER OF QUESTIONS SHOULD ANSWER IN ALL SECTIONS FOR CLEAR THE MAIN EXAM
praveen : Completely depends on Difficulty level for this year. Assuming similar level like last year 30-35 in QA and LA should be good attempt. In other section you should solve as many as you can. Overall 110+ will be ideal.


pooja : IN RA NOT ABLE TO SLOVE SYLLOGISM. HOW TO IMPROVE IT
krishnakuppachi : Deductions are a relatively easy topic to score. That's why we suggest the students to start with that. If you are not able to solve deductions questions, I would advise you to re-run your basics. Once you get the basics correct, the questions will seem very easy to answer


anwesha : IS THE DIFFICULTY LEVEL OF QUANT,ENGLISH & REASONING SECTION IN IBPS CLERK PRELIMS COMPARATIVELY HIGHER THAN IBPS CLERK MAIN EXAM?

tanya : WHAT WILL BE THE EXPECTED CUT OFF FOR GENERALS IN PRELIMS..?I COULD NOT CLEAR THE PRELIMS
hidayathullah : Difficult to predict.Depends on difficulty level and no of test takers. May be around 40.


bhav : SIR CAN U EXPLAIN THE APPROACH FOR PARA JUMBLED QUESTIONS BASED ON SOME REPORT ON ECONOMY?
keerthana : Don't panic. Attempt this LAST. IBPS PO usually has 6 sentence PFQ. Read all sentences. Identify possible sentences that are topical in nature, that begin the text. See what comes next. Sentences are usually linked thematically or through language linkers. However is a language linker and used as a contrast to the idea that goes before. look for these.Most often you will have to go by thematic linkers. Try to identify a sentence that is conclusive in nature. It can possibly be placed last. "thus" in a sentence is usually said in conclusions. Write down your order in the rough work and do a quick recheck. Go through our mock tests and online tests.Go through the SM.


bhav : SOME PUZZLE QUESTIONS THOUGH LOOKS LENGTHIER AND COMPLICATED BUT BECOMES EASY WHEN WE START TO DO BUT OTHERS BE JUST OPPOSITE. HOW TO RECOGNIZE THEM EASILY IN ORDER TO SAVE TIME?
krishnakuppachi : Typically the success of the puzzles questions lies on the identification of definitive and indefinitive conditions. By constant practice, one gets better at identifying the definitive conditions and that leads to the solving of the puzzles. If you do not start the puzzle with definitive conditions, the question gets complicated. Hope it clarifies.


bhav : SIR IF THERE IS NO SINGLE DEFINITE INFORMATION IN THR REASONING PUZZLE HOW TO APPROACH IT?
sashikumar : start by taking one of the possibilities and check out whether the entire information provided is valid or not,if it is not check out the other possibility


jaya : HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY ACCURACY IF I HAVE ONLY 12 DAYS FOR IBPS MAINS IN QUANTS ,REASONING ANS ENGLISH?

hidayathullah : Two different exams.Difficult to compare. try to improve your number of attempts.


deepika : SIR THE PREVIOUS YEARS PAPER THAT WE CHECKED IS LITTLE MODERATE BUT THE TESTS THAT WE'RE GIVING ARE REALLY DIFFICULT. SO HOW MUCH MARKS IN THESE TESTS WILL MAKE SURE WE GET THROUGH FOR THE INTERVIEW ROUND. AND WHAT COULD BE THE EXPECTED CUT OFF FOR GENERAL IN MAINS
manojsethi : Expected cut offs depends on number of factors. Dont sit for the exam keeping this aspect in mind. Our Mock Tests are combination of Easy, Moderate and Diff ones. Agree with you that the paper last year was moderate, but given the SBI PO 2016 Main which was real tough, we have kept the diff level of the mock tests on a slightly higher side . But not all mocks are tough.

amar : @MANOJSETHI. THANK YOU. BUT OTHER ONLINE EXAM PROVIDERS ARE GIVING DETAILS ABOUT THE TOPICS WHERE WE ARE STRONG AND WHICH TOPIC QUESTIONS MISSED WHEN WE ATTEMPT THEIR ONLINE TESTS. I THOUGHT IT IS POSSIBLE WITH OUR MOCK TESTS ALSO.

manojsethi : Current Affairs, Banking Awareness, Indian Economy and a few stock GK questions ( books/authors/etc)


anwesha : SINCE ONE MONTH,EVERYDAY I'M SOLVING 2 MOCK TEST & PRACTICING THE SOLUTION,SHOULD I NEED TO DO ANYTHING ELSE TO CLEAR THE IBPS CLERK PRELIMS?
manojsethi : Working out mock tests is sufficient. But give more focus on topics which are easy and important so that u do not looses out on easy questions in the exam


sri : SIR HOW CAN WE ANALYSE WITH SINGLE SIGHT WHICH PUZZLE/SEATING IS EASY ONE
krishnakuppachi : Generally, distribution/ranking puzzles are easy. Distribution questions with upto 2 parameters are easy ones which you can immediately work on, whereas more than 2 parameters can be picked up later. When it comes to circular/linear arrangement puzzles, if the puzzle speaks of some of them facing North/South or facing Centre/away from the table, such questions are complicated, though not difficult always. And circular/linear arrangement with distribution parameter, should be taken up later and circular with blood relations, the last priority. Hope it clarifies


kamal : WILL TIME PROVIDE SEPARATE MOCK TEST FOR INDIA POST PAYMENT BANK AND RBI ASSISTANT ?......
hidayathullah : You will be informed thru mail,if we are giving


rashmi : I AM PREPARING FOR BANK EXAM FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS BUT NOT ABLE TO CLEAR IT,WHAT SHOULD I DO?

hidayathullah : Quant- Series, Quadratic comp, individual quant questions,DI. Reasoning - Deductions,Input output,Symbols&Notations,Puzzles,coding decoding


khusbu : SIR WHAT IS THE APPROACH FOR SOLVING PARA JUMBLES
sumita : TO start with, look for the topical sentence, that is, one that clearly introduces the noun or the concept of the para. Identify the theme of the paragraph. Be quick in spotting connectives, articles, pronouns and conjunctions; these sentences always come later in the sequence. Then track the activity associated with these and form a sequence. Always write down the alphabets and read the paragraph in that order, to understand the idea flow.


raaaaj : WHAT SHOUD I PREPARE FOR DEVELOPENT ASSISTANT EXAM NABARD?
