Reading comprehension A text is usually followed by 8 to 10 questions. The passage is primarily factual. The passage's context might range from economics to philosophy. In general, stories occur in the exam as passages. However, aspirants must be prepared to face a variety of passages. The following questions usually have 3-4 synonym and antonym questions. The queries typically seek contextual significance. Aspirants can simply answer these questions. After answering these questions, candidates must attempt to answer the factual questions. Inference questions should be saved for the end.
Cloze test The Cloze test is a reading comprehension extension. More than the vocabulary, the aspirant's ability to grasp is important. The word used must be appropriate for the mood of the paragraph. Again, it is the contextual meaning that is important, not the dictionary definition. The more an aspirant reads, the better he becomes at choosing the correct words for the proper situations. As a result, applicants must commit at least one hour per day to reading articles.
Para jumbles The ability to establish connections between two sentences is quite useful in completing para jumble questions. Look for terms that link. Fixing the initial sentence also aids in figuring. Reread the produced passage after ordering the sentences to see if the arrangement makes sense. Aspirants can improve their ability to detect connections by practising para jumble questions. As a result, candidates must practise 3-4 para jumbles per day to become acquainted with this topic.
Spot the error To ace this topic, you only need to understand the foundations. Aspirants must learn the fundamental grammatical rules such as subject-verb agreement, articles, prepositions, and so on. This topic provides the most return on your exam time investment. Therefore, applicants must grasp the basic grammar rules completely.

Verbal Ability

These questions involve sentence re-arrangement or para jumbles, in which candidates must re-arrange 5-6 sentences to make a meaningful passage. These paragraphs may also raise some questions. The only way to master these kind of questions is to improve their reading speed and logic. This can only be accomplished via practise.
