Topic-Wise Tips for English Preparation

Reading Comprehension

One of the most common yet important topics from English section in all competitive exams including ESIC SSO. Always, read the questions and then skim through the passage. This way, you will be able to ‘pick’ out the answers from the passage as you go through it. Try answering the vocabulary questions first if you are good at it.

Cloze Test

Make sure you read each word that is given as an option and try fitting it in the sentence and seeing if it makes sense to you; that way by the method of elimination, you can remove the parts that you think are not a good fit for the sentences.

Sentence Rearrangement

Read through all the sentences to determine the gist or summary of the passage; look up the sentences independently and then think of how they come or match together. Then try arranging them separately or one-by-one; try to identify the first and last sentences of the passage, because that helps build a mental image or idea of how the rest of the sentences should be like.

Error Spotting

Read the sentence and see if it makes sense to you; quite often, some error will be obvious and hence it will be easy to spot that out. If not, look for the options and see what appears is the logically correct answer.

Phrase Replacement
