The questions set by SBI for it's PO Exam are always unpredictable. You can easily solve them only if you are good at basic English grammar. So I have decided to share some basic grammar rules as the 7th lesson of our SBI PO Study Plan. It will be very lengthy and the people who are using mobile to read may feel it difficult to read if I share them in a single post. So tomorrow's lesson will be of two parts. I will try to share them during morning and evening sessions. Please go through them thoroughly.
