  1. rrb 2014 me officer n assistant ke liye hume kitna score krna chahiye for final selection. Last yr mere 122 the assistant me but kahin se bhi interview ka call nai aaya.. plz reply

  2. Is it useful for rrb exam ??

  3. By looking at the image you have given(usually i avoid long passage readings and try to figure out the idea by images first, hence) I thought that the idea of seven is there, but you were different so here comes an idea which clicks my mind when I saw this post first.

    One simple way is to remember them in group of 7. take it like
    1. ABCDEFG
    2. HIJKLMN
    3. OPQRSTU
    4. VWXYZ ( Five letters only, but not misguiding)
    ( make a rhythm of 4-3, 4-3,4-3, 2-3 ABCD-EFG, HIJK-LMN, OPQR-STU, VW-XYZ)
    by remembering them in these four group u can easily, confidently get the exact number of any alphabet and that's even without doubt, within a jiffy.

    Let's check
    Suppose I want to figure out Q...lemme count its in 3rd group..a group of o is for fifteen( as we have made a group of seven, except last row), p is 16th and so Q is 17th.

    Try out works..

  4. Thanks for the dedication !!! and selfless help !!

  5. Are you shortlisted for typing test?

  6. plz share answer key also !!

  7. does any one have idea about apgvb office assistant results??

  8. 45*55
    45/2*110 (55+55)
    instead of 110 we can write 100+10, so....
    22.5*100 + 22.5*10

  9. thanks mam for ur great effort......

  10. Hi I'm so afraid of rrb office assistant exam on 21.9.14 please suggest me some idea.

  11. Topics for general awareness for rrb exam to prepare

  12. please tell me how the ibps clerks exam will be ...

  13. hai, iam usha i belong to ap circle general category,i am getting 67 marks please tell whether i will be selected.

  14. if we clear the second round...we are selected or the merit is based on paper1

  15. please do reply.what are my chances to get selected for second round .i scored 67 in a.p circle general category

  16. 53*11
    if 5+3=8 if the total was less than 10 means you place the total no (8) in between the numbers .583

    another example :42*11=462
    4+2 =6 it was less than 10 so insert the number between 4 and 2

  17. but in gujarat circle there are 564 seats but candidate with 64 marks in general category was not short listed for the typing test,ap circle has only541 seats,then how will i get selected for typing test, i lost hopes after seeing gujarat results

  18. this way we can link any number to any alphabets

  19. say in a single word ............superb job...............

  20. I have a doubt..regarding the step for multiplication by 5.
    You have given examples with even numbers so it becomes easy to divide the number by 2 and then multiply it with 10. But what if the number is odd? will it work still the same and give correct results?

  21. Nice

    But plz explain 115 ×115.....?

  22. Hai friendzzzz...
    Another Shortcut Method for Multiply 45*55:
    1st Step:
    Check the Conditions
    (i) Unit Digit is 5 (ex:25,35,45...)
    (ii) Difference of Tens in digits are 1.(ex:25*35, 3~2=1; 45*55, 4~5=1...)

    2nd Step:
    Adding larger number by 1 is 5+1 = 6, then multiply 6 by 4 (6*4) = 24
    Last two digit is only 75.

    Then the answer is 2475...

  23. Hi
    Dude i remember M is comes on 13th place and W is same like M but Opposite so 23 place. and T20 match is very Popular so its 20 number. thnks.

  26. U-> 2 as in YOU 21 n V->22 : WE 22

  27. but this is not working on 65*75...

  28. I've a one question. Coding and decoding really helps to perform daily banking activity? I thing banking recruitment process is out dated. And one thing I don't understand that they really want to hire a banker or a secret agent who will work IID,(RAW)

  29. first multiply 11*11
    then have square of 5
    then combine both the result
