IBPS PO Prelims 2018 : Memory Based English Questions with Solution

Direction: In the given question, four words are printed in bold and are numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4. Of these given parts, the positions of two of these words may be incorrect and need to be exchanged to make the sentence correct. Find the two words which are needed to be exchanged. If the given sentence is correct, then your answer is (E) i.e. No correction required.


Q.1) Sharma has expressed promotion (1) for Modi in the past and was one of those nominated (2) by Modi for the support (3) of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan campaign (4).

(a)    2-4
(b)   2-3
(c)    1-3
(d)   1-2
(e)    No correction required.

Solution

One should not express “promotion” towards someone else. Hence the part (1) is incorrect and needs to be exchanged with some other word. Since the later part of sentence says that the same person was nominated by Modi for some program, the most appropriate word would be ‘support’. In part (3) it is describing the task related to the program for which Sharma was nominated. Thus, the word ‘promotion’ fits here as a program can be ‘promoted’. Hence the correct answer is option (c)


Q.2) Haji Ali Dargah has approached (1) the Supreme Court, internal (2) the Bombay High Court, which had allowed (3) women in the challenging (4) portion of the dargah.

(a)    1-2
(b)   2-3
(c)    1-3
(d)   2-4
(e)    No correction required

Solution

An organisation would reach out to the Supreme Court to challenge the decision (which would have been against it) of a lower court. Thus, in (2) ‘challenging’ fits the best. Also in the latter part of the sentence, a particular portion of the dargah is being talked about. So, “internal” fits appropriately. Thus option (d) is the correct answer.


Q.3) Yoghurt on an empty (1) stomach leads to an/a content (2) in the hydrochloric acid increase (3), which kills (4) lactic acid bacteria.

(a)    1-3
(b)   2-3
(c)    1-2
(d)   2-4
(e)    No correction required

Solution

We can use content to refer to the amount or proportion of something that a substance (hydrochloric acid) contains. If we have to show the content or amount of hydrochloric acid, we should have used 'of hydrochloric acid'. But, that is not the case. 'Content' is more suitable in position (3). The word 'Increase' also fits in position (2) as it describes the change in the amount of hydrochloric acid. Hence, the correct answer is option (b).


Q.4) Vietnam is sadly (1) notorious for its animal smuggling gangs, and actually (2) enough, the country (3) is a massive consumer of tiger parts (4) itself.

(a)    1-2
(b)   2-3
(c)    1-3
(d)   2-4
(e)    No correction required

Solution

'Actually' is used to emphasize the truth or facts of a situation. Animal smuggling and consuming of animal parts is not surprising at all in today's world. It is rather a sad fact. Animal smuggling is an ugly truth in our world. So, 'actually' would fit better in position (1) so as to put emphasis on the truth that is animal smuggling. 'Sadly' would fit in position (2) because it would better describe the consumption of animal parts. Hence, the correct answer is option (a).


Q.5) We've all come through (1) advertisements when brands take on one another (2), and openly mock the rival brand across (3) print, digital or broadcast media (4).

(a)    1-2
(b)   2-3
(c)    1-3
(d)   2-4
(e)    No correction required

Solution

When we talk about movement from one side to another but ‘in something’ we use through instead of across. When we talk about something extending or moving from one side to another, we use across not through. The brands mock each other in all types of media. As far as advertisements are concerned, we start at the beginning of the advertisement and stop at the end. So, (1) & (3) should change positions. Hence, the correct answer is option  (c).
