Candidates may come across several problems while preparing for the bank exams and one such problem is Sentence Completion in the English section. The English section of the banking exams is of moderate to hard level. Therefore one has to pay extra attention to the preparation of the English section.
Thus in this article, we will discuss various approaches to solve the Sentence Completion Questions in the exam quickly with accuracy.
How to Solve Sentence Completion Questions
In sentence completion questions, the candidates are required to complete the given sentence in a proper way. A part of the sentence can be missing either from start, last or middle.
Let's understand the important points which a candidate should keep in mind while solving sentence completion questions -
- The main aim of sentence completion questions is to make a meaningful sentence.
- Elimination: The best way in which you can save your time is by going through the options. Options will solve half of your problems. If you are able to identify the options which cannot complete the sentence at all then eliminate those options.
- In choices that are closely related, identify a mandatory pair of sentences (two sentences that should form a sequence). Again, eliminate the options which do not have this pair.
- Look out for quick clues like pronouns, conjunctions etc. at the beginning of sentences to help you establish a sequence.
- If there is no clue from sentence 1, you may try to work backwards from the last sentence.
Now let us understand the topic with the help of important and different types of questions -Select the best out of the four answer choices given, to make the sentence complete and coherent (coherent means logically complete and sound). If none of the sentences is appropriate, mark (E) i.e., ‘None of these’ as the answer.
- proved that such agitations result in loss of governmental property
- indicated that the formation of small states does not necessarily improve the economy
- suggested that only large scale agitations have been effective in bringing out desired change in the past
- recommended dividing large states into smaller ones to improve governance.
- None of the above
- Option A seems correct on the first view but is incorrect because the main topic of consideration is not the agitations, but the formation of separate states.
- Option C is incorrect because the context is of the rationale or the relevance of the agitations and not the scale of it.
- Option D is incorrect because the statement is about the report not being in the favour of the agitations.
- Option B acts as the complimenting statement to the first clause and thus is the correct response.
- Organized crime broke out
- Full-scale protests broke out
- Multilevel hunger strikes broke out
- Civil War broke out
- Large scale famine broke out
Answer : D
Solution: According to the context of the given sentences, the controversy over slavery led to some grand event in April 1861. The sentence further describes the trigger of the event to be the attack on Fort Sumter. Which implies the event wasn't a protest, hunger strike or famine. The remaining two options are ‘organized crime’ and ‘civil war’. If we analyse the context of the sentence further, it can be concluded that the ‘fight’ was between the internal forces of US. (As the controversy was among the people of States). This hints towards a civil war, which is a war between citizens of the same country. Further, the sentence has nothing which hints towards organized crime. Therefore, option D is the correct answer.
I. Saint-Just was never comfortable with the improvised interventions and frequent exchange of insults that often characterised the debate.
II. The important theoretical work by Paul de Man sets forth a mode of reading and interpretation based on exemplary texts by Rousseau, Nietzsche, Rilke, and Proust.
III. Rather than the debating intervention, Burke was repeatedly greeted with jeers and demonstrations when he rose to speak.
- Both I and II
- Both II and III
- Both I and III
- Only I
- None of these
Answer : D
Solution: The conjunction ‘so’ means ‘and for this reason; therefore.’ So the given and the required phrase should share a cause and effect relationship.
The usage of statement II will make the sentence ambiguous as no cause and effect relationship gets established. Statement III does not establish a logical cause and relationship. Statement I clearly does so and this is the most appropriate fit. It states the method of speech delivery of Saint-Just which he had developed owing to the elements he disliked in debates.
Therefore, option D is the apt answer.
Question 4: _________ or else they would not keep electing him year after year.
- The party leader gave a strong message to the mayor for improving his political style
- Owing to numerous scandals against the mayor was told to resign from the post immediately
- The mayor threatened the residents against filling a complaint against him
- The residents must really be impressed with the political style of their mayor
- None of the above
Answer : D
- Option A is incorrect as the mayor is not elected by the party leaders but by the voters.
- Option B is incorrect as it makes little sense; if the person is asked to resign, then there is hardly any connection with him being elected in the coming years.
- Option C fails to make any sense as well.
