SBI Clerk 2022 : Series Questions

In such queries, a succession of numbers is offered. They are all linked.
Best of all, once you discover the pattern, solving the problem becomes a piece of cake. There might be numerous patterns. namely.,
  • The Prime Numbers
  • Squares and cubes
  • Differences reveal patterns
  • Alternate number pattern
  • Geometric sequence
  • The odd one out
  1. Don't rush to solve those issues. Allow yourself considerable time and absolute precision.
  2. If you don't rehearse such a question, you could wind up spending 10-15 minutes and still not having an answer. This will cost you not only marks, but will also result in bad handling of the other areas of the paper.
  3. So here's the mantra: practise, practise, practise. Begin by going over the fundamental series questions.
  4. For the rest of the days, answer five series questions per day. This will quicken your pace, expose you to more series combinations, and prepare you for the most challenging seating arrangement questions by the time you take the exam.

SBI Clerk 2022 : Interpretation of Data

  • Data Interpretation is a critical element in the Quantitative Aptitude section.
  • If you follow the recent question trend, the Quantitative portion will almost probably include one or more DI questions.
  • Read the questions carefully and think about what is being asked. Do not start solving the problem and figures as soon as you see them. Read and comprehend what is being asked. Sometimes a few of issues will arise that do not necessitate any calculations.
  • Examine your options. Some questions are frequently easier to answer than others. Identify and fix these issues as soon as possible.
  • Answer each question one at a time. If you ponder about the next or prior question, you will purposefully waste time and answer the question incorrectly.
  • Examine the entire question and move on to the next if you believe it will take longer to solve.

SBI Clerk 2022 : Sufficient Data

  • Read the statements and don't make assumptions based solely on the data.
  • Don't try to address the problem: Consider whether the information in the statements will provide a response to the question. These concerns do not necessitate significant and exhaustive calculations. But if you continue to conduct a lot of computations, there must be something you're missing.
  • Use and combine the first and second statements. It is sufficient to react to the first statement if you receive an answer.
  • If the first statement is insufficient to discover the answer, combine the second statement with the primary statement. If you can acquire the answer, you can answer using only the second sentence.
