Here is the Bank of India's Clerk Exam Previous Paper (English Language) Held on 3rd October 2010. Happy Reading.

Directions of Q1–Q15 Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

There was a famous temple on a high hill in Assam. The priest of this temple was widely respected and was known to be a great scholar. When he grew old, he started searching for a younger priest who could take charge of the temple after his death. But, much to his dismay, he could not find any suitable person. As the priest lay on his deathbed, he called the trustee of the temple and told him, “After my death, make sure that only a ‘human being’ replaces me as the priest of this temple”. As soon as he said these words, he died. Information travelled far and wide that the head priest of the famous temple had died and now there was an urgent need for a replacement. A day was set for the selection of the successor. That day, starting at dawn, aspirants started trekking the steep andtorturous climb to the temple. The route to the temple was indeed difficult; it was full of thorns, and stones. By the time most people managed to reach the temple, they had received minor cuts and bruises on their feet and hands.

Math Tables in Audio (Mp3) format

First time in the history, is proudly presenting Math tables in audio (Mp3) format. The concept behind this post is very simple. Its an open secret that most of us don’t know the answer of “What is Seventeen eights are!!!”. Ofcourse we do have some techniques to calculate the answer in our minds, but my question is “Why to waste those few seconds during the time of exam???”. We are posting the tables in audio format because It has been known for years that our brains can continue to take in and learn new information even while we are asleep. So why not use this to help those people who have great difficulty in learning their 'times tables'. These  files are numbered the same as the tables. i.e. the Ten’s times table is track 10; the Thirteen’s times table is track 13 etc. The tables cover the numbers from 1 to 20! You can use the files in two different ways : 

Tenses Basics

The word 'Tense' has been derived from a Latin word 'Tempus', which means "time" in Latin. The part of the English which says you about the time is called tense. Tenses are important part of the language. In this article we will help you to get the basic knowledge of tenses and how to tackle with the questions in any exam on tenses. The most important rule while attending any English question in a competitive exam is that never look for the answer in the option, first read the question and have the strength to find its answers without looking into options after you get the answer check that in option and choose it. But if you go for option directly you will just get confused because examiner sets options in such a way that you feel all the options are correct this will drop your confidence and you will definitely opt for a wrong option. Ok, now lets see the basic tense table here. You can download its pdf version too. Happy Reading :)
