New Pattern General English Questions for IBPS PO 2017

D.1-10) A sentence is shown in four parts marked as (a), (b), (c) and (d) in each question. Read the sentences carefully and select the part which is grammatically wrong. If every part in the sentence is grammatically correct then, choose ‘No error’ (e) as the answer.

Q.1) A few days ago, He received (a)/ a WhatsApp message rhetorically (b)/ asking why left liberals are (c)/ so negative/pessimistic about the country. (d)/ No error. (e)

Ans: Option e)

Negative and pessimistic are synonymous. `A few….ago’ is an adverbial phrase – no error. `He received a whatsApp message – main clause in the past tense – No error. `Asking is a present participle acting as adjective, modified by adverb rhetorically, `why left … country’ object clause for the verb `asking’ all are right.

Q.6) Arjun Kapoor on gone (a)/ beyond being a Juhu boy and (b)/ why making successful Bollywood films (c)/ is all about understanding India. (d)/ No error. (e)

Ans: Option a)

`on gone’ is wrong usage. It should be replaced by `going’
