IBPS PO Prelims 2018 : Memory Based English Questions with Solutions

Direction In these given questions, two columns I and II and three sentences are given, which are divided into two parts. The Column I (A, B and C) consists of first half of each sentence and the Column II (D, E and F) consists of second half of each sentence. Match the column I with the column II, so that the sentences formed are both meaningful and grammatically correct. Choose the correct option as your answer.

Column I
Column II
A) The Climate change is any significant long-term change in the expected patterns
D) individual motives or preferences about work.
B) This concept is substantively different from work-related 
E) of the average weather of a region (or the whole Earth) at a significant period of time. 
C) The most suitable soil for the cultivation of wheat 
F) is well drain fertile loamy soil and also clayey soil.

(a)    B-E and C-F
(b)   A-E, B-F and C-D
(c)    A-F and C-D
(d)   B-D
(e)    A-E and C-F

Solution :

 A and E could have made a pair, but since the preposition "at" is mentioned in E, the sentence, if made, will be grammatically incorrect. Part A clearly mentions that climate change is a long-term change, hence the preposition "over" should be used instead of "at".
C and F could have made a pair, but "drain" is incorrect in part F. We need to describe the soil, thus, the adjective "drained" should be used. "Well" acts as an adverb to modify "drained".

B and D form a correct pair, thus, option (d) is the correct answer.

Column I
Column II
A) This is one of the most popular trekking routes in Darjeeling 
D) area and offers magnificent views of the valleys and mountains on the way
B) The Earth's magnetic field serves to deflect most of the solar wind, whose charged particles 
E) crops, who are cultivated on nearly 60 per cent of cropland. 
C) The major impacts of climate change will be on rain-fed or un-irrigated 
F) would otherwise strip away the ozone layer that protect the Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation.

(a)    A-D 
(b)   A-E and C-F
(c)    C-E

(d)   A-E, B-F and C-D
(e)    C- D and A- F

A and D make a meaningful and grammatically correct pair and talk about the popular trekking routes in Darjeeling. B and F could be linked, but there is a grammatical error in F. Here in this question the "layer" is a singular subject and "protect" is a plural verb. Since there is only one ozone layer, "protects" should be used to agree with it. C and E cannot be paired as "crops" are things and cannot use the pronoun "who". Thus, option (a) is the correct answer.

Column I
Column II
A) The Banking sector in India has always been
D) the students were divided into two groups. 
B) Supposedly on the basis of their preferences for each painting, 
E) one of the most preferred avenues of employment. 
C)  Before you take a step towards the future, imagine 
F) what you want there to been in it.

(a)    A-E and B-D
(b)   A-F, A-E and B- D
(c)    B-F
(d)   C- D
(e)    C-D and B-F

A- E and B- D make correct pairs. The pair C-F cannot form a correct pair as the future is being talked about and "been" indicates the past. "Be" should be used to make the sentence correct inplace of been. So, option (a) is the correct answer.

Column I
Column II
A) When you imagine your ideal future, you’re 
D) outgroup are seen as caused by stable negative group characteristics. 
B) Utilize is when you’re using
E) something in an way other than its intended purpose .
C) Negative behaviours on the part of the 
F) rarely aware of how long the path will be.

(a)    B-F and C-E 
(b)   A-D and C-D
(c)    C-D and A-F
(d)   C-E
(e)    B- D

C- D and A- F make correct pairs. B- E cannot form a correct pair as "way" starts with a consonant and the article "an" cannot be used before it. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer

Direction: In each question, a sentence with four words printed in bold is given. These highlighted words are numbered as (1), (2), (3) and (4). One in every four words printed in bold may either be misspelt or inappropriate in the context of the sentence. Find out that highlighted word which is wrongly spelt or inappropriate, if any. The number of that word is your answer. If all the words written in bold are correctly spelt and also appropriate in the context of the sentence, mark (5), ie ‘All Correct’, as your answer.

Q.5) Many Indian firms have entry (1)/ into partnership (2)/ with foreign (3)/ ones of late. (4)/ All correct (5)

(a)   Entry
(b)   Partnership
(c)    Foreign
(d)  Late
(e)   All correct

With the present perfect tense we use the third form of the verb; therefore ‘entry’ should be replaced by ‘entered’. Hence, option (a) is the correct alternative.

Q.6) This is a prime (1)/ example (2)/ of what the government can achieve (3)/ if it is determine. (4)/ All correct (5)

(a)   Prime
(b)   Example
(c)    Achieve
(d)  Determine
(e)   All Correct

‘Determine' is not grammatically correct in the given statement, it should be replaced by 'determined'. Determined is an adjective which means having made a firm decision and being resolved not to change it, while 'determine' is a verb which means 'to assess'. Thus, option (d) is the correct answer.

Q.7) They managed (1)/ to accomplice (2)/ this by coming (3)/ up with unique (4)/ schemes.

(a)   Managed
(b)   Accomplice
(c)    Coming
(d)  Unique
(e)   All are correct


The word ‘accomplice (means: assistant)’ used in (2) is not appropriate in the given context, it should be replaced by ‘accomplish’ which means to achieve, to succeed in doing or completing something. Hence, option (b) is the correct answer.

Q.8) An overly /obsessed /mother from Banaras wrote / in to tell me of her trajedy./ All correct 

(a)   Overly
(b)   Obsessed
(c)    Wrote
(d)  Trajedy
(e)   All correct

The correct spelling is TRAGEDY. Thus, option (d) is the apt answer.

Q.9) The cat is sitting in front / of the television/ with its tail, stretched / out strait /. All correct.

(a)   Front
(b)   Television
(c)    Stretched
(d)  Strait
(e)   All correct

The correct spelling is STRAIGHT. Thus, option (c) is the right answer.
