Previous Year Question Papers PDF – Sneek-Peek

In this section, I will list down a couple of questions from each section of the Question paper. This will give you an idea about the questions and solutions you would get by downloading the Memory based Previous Year Question Paper PDFs.

1. SBI PO Previous Year Question Paper PDF

The first PDF is for SBI PO 2019 Prelims Exam. Lets us have a look at the questions for each of the 3 sections – Reasoning, Quant & English, asked in this exam:

1.1 SBI PO Previous Year Question Paper PDF – English Questions & Solutions

Q8. In the question given below, four statements are given which may or may not contain an error. Choose the one that is grammatically and meaningfully correct. If all the sentences are correct, mark ‘All are correct’ as your answer.

—————————

  1. Since lightning struck the tree and rendered its centre hollow during the 1600s, it managed to survive.
  2. The project is targeted to go fully live by February 2020 and cover thousands of terminals in Singapore.
  3. Evolution is usually represented as an orderly tree, but in reality its branches can became intertwined.
  4. The ministry observed that the message of protection of rights of children are yet to reach the masses.
  5. All are correct

Correct Option: 2

Solution: The statement in option (a) is incorrect because of use of connector ‘since’, which is used while indicating the cause; the two parts of the sentence are of contrasting nature as the tree survived even though it got struck by lightning. ‘Though’ is one of the connectors which would have fit here.

The statement in option (c) is incorrect because the modal auxiliary verb ‘can’ always takes a verb in its base form after it; ‘became’ is the past form of verb.

The statement in option (d) is incorrect because the use of ‘are’ (third person plural present of be) with the singular noun ‘message’ violates the subject-verb agreement.

The statement in option (b) is grammatically correct and meaningful. Hence, option (b) is the correct answer.

===========================

Q20. In the question below, a sentence is given with one blank in it. Choose the option that provides the correct word to be filled in the blank.

  • The Moon’s formation and early evolution present ____________ which, if understood, could guide us in planetary studies, and help in understanding exoplanets.

—————————

  1. Acquisitions
  2. Mysteries
  3. Adversaries
  4. Commissions
  5. None of the above

Correct Option: 2

—————————

Solution: The sentence tells us that understanding certain events related to the moon can in turn help us understand exoplanets and can guide us in planetary studies. The use of ‘understanding’ can be taken as a clue that ‘mysteries’ is the right word for the blank. The remaining words do not fit in the context and do not make the sentence meaningful. B is the right answer.

1.2 SBI PO Previous Year Question Paper PDF – Quantitative Aptitude Questions & Solutions

Q43. If the ratio of areas of an equilateral triangle to a circle is √3:16π , what is the ratio of side length of the equilateral triangle to the radius of the circle?

—————————

  1. 2:3
  2. 1:2
  3. 1:1
  4. 3:4
  5. 1:3

Correct Option: 2

—————————

Solution: Let the side length of the equilateral triangle be ‘a’ cm and the radius of the circle be ‘r’ cm.

Given, ((√3/4)*a2)/π r2 = √3/16π

=> a2/r2 = 1/4

=> a:r = 1:2

===========================

Q44. A sum is divided among five friends A, B, C, D and E respectively such that B got 20% more than what C got, C got 80% of the amount received by E who received Rs.200 more than A and 70% of share of D. If A got Rs.500, then what is the sum?

—————————

  1. 3432
  2. 2996
  3. 2678
  4. 3150
  5. 3530

Correct Option: 1

—————————

Solution: A = 500

E = 500 + 200 = 700

D = (100/70) x 700 = 1000

C = 80% of 700 = 560

B = 120% of 560 = 672

Sum = A + B + C + D + E = 500 + 672 + 560 + 1000 + 700

= Rs.3432

1. SBI Clerk Previous Year Question Paper PDF

This PDF is for SBI Clerk 2020 Prelims Exam. Lets us have a look at the questions for each of the 3 sections – Reasoning, Quant & English, asked in this exam:

1.1 SBI Clerk Previous Year Question Paper PDF – English Questions & Solutions

Q7. In the following question, a word has been given and there are three ways in which the word or one of its forms has been used. You need to see which of the sentence(s) has/have correctly used the given word and mark your answer accordingly.

VAGUE

  • As with so much of the language in the wellness and beauty industries, the language treads a fine line between being scientific-sounding and vague enough to avoid legal action.
  • There are a number of theories, but no vague answer.
  • Below the clouds I see vague ridges of mountains and dark forests.

 

  1. Only II and III
  2. Only I
  3. Only I and II
  4. Only I and III
  5. All I, II and III

Correct Option: 4

—————————

Solution: Vague(adjective)- of uncertain, indefinite, or unclear character or meaning; thinking or communicating in an unfocused or imprecise way. It fits correctly in (I) and (III), but it is contextually incorrect in (II). ‘Vague’ does not fit into (II) correctly; the sentence talks about a number of theories and then proceeds with a contrast. ‘Definite’ would be appropriate in the given statement. Hence, (d) is the right answer.

===========================

Q18. In the question given below, four sentences are given, which may or may not contain an error. Decide which of the sentence is grammatically correct or meaningful and mark the answer accordingly.

—————————

  1. Drawing from the experience, we undertook similar initiatives in nearby communities successfully.
  2. Rise in sea surface temperature, due to global warming, drove up humid in the coastal areas.
  3. While other countries are struggling to control there population, India is on the path to stabilize theirs.
  4. The mission aims to preserved the essence of rural community life.
  5. All are correct

Correct Option: 1

—————————

Solution: The statement in option (b) is incorrect because the verb ‘drove’ requires a noun after it; ‘humid’ is an adjective; the noun ‘humidity’ should have been used in the sentence instead.

The statement in option (c) is incorrect because the use of adverb ‘there’ to refer to the noun ‘counties’ renders the sentence meaningless; the determiner ‘their’ should have been used in the sentence instead.

The statement in option (d) is incorrect because the infinitive marker ‘to’ requires a verb in its base form after it; ‘preserved’ is a past form of verb or a past participle; the base form of verb, i.e., ‘preserve’ should have been used in the sentence instead.

The statement in option (a) is grammatically correct and meaningful. Hence, option (a) is the correct answer.

Q43. 4 years ago age of A was 1.5 times of that of B and difference between their ages after 4 years will be 20 years, then what is the present age of A?

—————————

  1. 80 years
  2. 60 years
  3. 32 years
  4. 47 years
  5. 64 years

Correct Option: 5

—————————

Solution: Let ages of A and B 4 years ago was ‘3x’ and ‘2x’ respectively.

Now,

(3x + 8) – (2x + 8) = 20

x = 20

Present age of A = 3x + 4 = 64 years

  3. 16400
  4. 12800
  5. 19200

Solution: Let salary = 100x

Amount invested in MF = 10% of 100x = 10x

Amount spends in Grocery = 30% of 100x = 30x

Now,

10x = 4800

x = 480
