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 the 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.
