Friends, Here is the English Language section of the Previous Paper of Central Bank of India - Clerk (First Shift). Held on 13th February 2011. Happy Reading :). Directions : (Q. 1–15) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are printed in bold to help you to locate them while answering some of the questions.

The Sun, while going on his daily rounds saw a princess and fell in love with her. Whenever he could slip away from the heavens he would take human form and go down to the princess to spend some time with her. The princess too became quite fond of him and would wait for him to come. One day the Sun decided to send her a blood-red ruby as a token of his love for her. He put the gem in a silk bag, and calling a crow that was flying past, asked the bird to deliver the gem to his beloved. Crows had milky white feathers in those days and it was considered auspicious if a crow came anywhere near you. So the Sun was pleased that he had found a crow to deliver the gem. As the crow sped through the sky with the silken bag, the aroma of food lured him. Looking down the crow saw that a wedding feast was in progress, and immediately it was distracted from its mission. Food was one thing it could never resist !

Data Interpretation for IBPS PO VII Exam 2017

Data Interpretation,  the one of the easiest, time taking and scoring topic of the Bank Exams.  Everybody knows this fact... but people pay less attention on this area. But unfortunately in IBPS PO VII Exam, the complete aptitude section will depend on Data Interpretation. So you should concentrate more on this area.

In this post, we shall discuss about the basics Data Interpretation.  The Data Interpretation is also called as comprehension of mathematics. Because, in reading comprehension, we have to study the passage and answer the questions followed by that passage. In the same way, in Data Interpretation, some data is given in the form of graphs, charts and tables followed by questions. We have to study, understand and analyze the data to solve the questions. Here we have to keep in mind that, even a 10th standard boy can solve these problems. But you've to solve these problems IN TIME.

So you have to practice well so that you can do the small calculations (like additions, subtractions, and simple multiplications) with a glance (see here for shortcuts in mental maths). Now lets have a look at some basic details of Data Interpretations.


All of us know what the TABLE is.... Here the Data is given in the form of rows and columns. A row is a series of cells going horizontally across the table.  A column is a series of cells going vertically or up and down the table. We have to analyze these rows and columns and should answer the questions according to them. Lets have a look at an example.  The following table gives the data of the number of computers produced by five companies namely P, Q, R, S and T over the years 2004 to 2009 (the production is in Thousands).

Pie Chart

You might have observed the Pie Charts while reading about Budget.The pie chart is a circular chart which is sectors. In a pie chart, the arc length of each sector (and consequently its central angle and area), is proportional to the quantity it represents. As we've already said, these charts are more useful while showing the percentages and ratios. Lets discuss these type of problems with an example. The following Pie - Chart shows the different colors of cars using by the 7200 people of a town. 

Line Graphs

The line graph is another important type of graph. The line graph displays information as a series of data points connected by some straight line segments (or simply lines). You can simply say that the Line Graph is the graph which uses points connected by lines to show how something changes in value. Lets have a look at an example Line Graph so that we can understand the topic in detail.


Subdivided / Component Bar Diagrams

The Sub Divided / Component bar diagrams are used to represent data in which the total magnitude (bar) is divided into different parts or components. In these type of diagrams, first they make simple bars for each class taking total magnitude in that class and then divide these simple bars into parts in the ratio of various components. With an example we shall try to understand the Concept. 

Assume that you have to give the data of the production of vehicles of 3 companies (name them P, Q and R) over the years 1994 to 2000. 

Multiple Bar Diagram

This model is also same as the simple Bar Diagram. But the difference is, here we have to encounter more than one bar... I mean, we have to do problems with two or more vertical or horizontal bars. In these type of diagrams normally they will give the information of two different organizations (like the production of soaps of two different companies) or the information of two different items of the same organization (like the production of the soaps and shampoos of the same company) and asks questions on the given data. Have a look at an example.

Bar Diagrams

The Bar Diagram is the basic model of the Data Interpretation Problems. The bar diagram is a two dimensional graphic representation where the elementary graphic objects are a set of rectangles or bars drawn in parallel so that the extension of the same is proportional to the magnitude they intend to represent.

Shortcut for finding Cubes

Attention Friends... we've came to know that this method is not working for some numbers... So presently we are working on more efficient method than this... We advise you to avoid this method....

In our last posts we've discussed the method of finding Squares (read that post Here). In this post we shall discuss the method of finding cubes. This is very easy and simple method. You just have to put little concentration while learning and should do little practice so that you can do the process in a easy way mentally. And another thing you should keep in mind is, we are posting the step by stem inorder to make you understand the process in detail, but you SHOULD do most of these steps MENTALLY and only should put some important final results on paper. Now lets have a look at the method. In earlier method of finding squares we'd discussed finding the squares with the formula (a+b)2 , here we shall use the formula (a+b)3
Lets start with an example. Assume that you should find out the cube of 18. The general process is multiplying 18 to itself for 2 times (18 x 18 x 18). This process is time consuming and often people end up with the wrong answer caused by confusion and hurry. 
Ok, now lets use our method. here you should use the formula  (a+b) = a3 +b3+ 3a2b +3ab2. But here you should be little tricky. Have a look.........
