Currency Notes based Seating Arrangement Puzzle Asked in IBPS Clerks VII Prelims 2017

1 comment
Hi friends, I am Srinivas. I would like to share the Currency note based circular seating arrangement problem asked in IBPS Clerical Preliminary Exam held on 2nd December 2017 (1st Shift). Below is the main question which helps you to workout and draw the arrangement.  I couldn't recollect the option question so I am not sharing them here, after all they just asked randomly about the places and values of various notes.


Here it goes :
There are eight notes of different denominations i.e., 1, 5, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 2000 rupees which are arranged in a circular arrangement facing towards the centre not necessarily in the same order. 50 rupees note is arranged second to the right of 200 rupees note. Odd denominations note will not be immediate neighbour of 200 and 50 rupees note. There will be less than 100 rupee denomination note to the immediate left and immediate right of 100 rupees note except 1 rupee note. 100 rupee note is second to the left of 5 rupees note. 2000 rupees note is second to the left of 100 rupees note. Now find out the arrangement. 

Below is my answer to this question. 
Thanks for reading.

Failures are the Pillars of Success

Leave a Comment
"Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing." 
Denis Waitley
On the journey of life, everyone have to struggle, face ups and downs. Obstacles and hardships are bound to be there in one's lives. But what is important is how we tackle them. It is the perception of an individual towards the same that defines the course of his life. It has been aptly remarked that "To be a champion, fight one more round". It is one's tireless pursuit that will lead him to success. Success and failure are the two facets of a coin. There are people who may give up or there are others who are ready to take the failure as a challenge. A brave person takes the failures as a challenge, to step up the ladder of success. Destiny also favours the brave.

It is our attitude towards the life that helps us to shape our destiny. Failures can be disheartening when one is unable to cope with the situation. At such times, one must remember that it is the cowards who run away from the situation.

It is seldom that a child can walk without tumbling or falling down. But these small failures do not deter his spirit. Slowly and gradually, he learns to stand on his feet and then walk It is because of the child's will power that he is able to stand upright. This gives us a lesson that we must try and try until we succeed.

Success is a culmination of hard work, dedication, and determination. It is not necessary that every effort bears fruit. But every step definitely gives us an experience and this experience is incomparable. Failures not only make us aware of our shortcomings but provide a learning lesson.

How to Overcome Competitive Exam Fear / Anxiety

Leave a Comment
Competitive Exams are often considered a ‘fear’ factor among aspirants. Many aspirants complain that they forgot everything they read as soon as they saw the exam paper due to anxiety. A certain amount of fear / anxiety prior to examination is a desirable spur to effort. But when the anxiety becomes excessive and is not channeled into productive work, it leads to a general inhibition of mental process. Every person writing competitive exams experiences some degree of anxiety or a bit of nervousness. This is normal and in fact necessary in order to be sufficiently motivated to perform. Competitive Exam anxiety refers to the intense nervousness which some students feel when they have to write a test / exam. Symptoms may include the following : 

Before the exam : Insomnia, less (or increased) appetite, or inability to concentrate. Boredom may also be a symptom of anxiety. A surface lack of interest in a subject may cover a deep-seated anxiety about future performance. There may be mock indifference (don't care attitude), guilt, anger and depression.

During the exam : Confusion, panic, mental blocks, fainting. Think about the reasons for your anxiety and write them down. Consider each reason very rationally and objectively. Write down the worst that could possibly happen e.g. "If I felt embarrassed, then the worst that could happen is..." By spending some time analysing each cause of your concern, you will come to realise that in fact, there is nothing that can damage you permanently if you do happen to fail an exam. Lots of students have failed. It does not mean they give up. Many students who fail return with a vengeance and perform very well — they are the survivors in life ! They make a new plan when the chips are down.
