Reading Comprehension Practice Test for SBI POs & Clerks 2018

SBI PO 2017 : Reading Comprehension Practice Test

Directions (1-10) : Read the following pas-sage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. 


John Maynard Keynes, the trendiest dead economist of this apocalyptic moment, was the godfather of government stimulus. Keynes had the radical idea that throwing money at recessions through aggressive deficit spending would resuscitate flatlined economies-and he wasn't too particular about where the money was thrown. In the depths of the Depression, he suggested that the Treasury could "fill old bottles with banknotes, bury them at suitable depths in disused coal mines" then sit back and watch a money-mining boom create jobs and prosperity. "It would, indeed, be more sensible to build houses and the like, "he wrote, but above would be better than nothing".


As President-elect Barack Obama prepares to throw money at the current downturn -a stimulus package starting at about $600 billion, plus the second $350 billion chunk of the financial bailout -we all really do seem to be Keynesians now. Just about every expert agrees that pumping $1 trillion into a moribund economy will rev up the ethereal goods-and-services engine that Keynes called "aggregate demand" and stimulate at least some short-term activity, even if it is all wasted on money pits. But Keynes was also right that there would be more sensible ways to spend it. A trillion dollars' worth of bad ideas -sprawl-inducing highways and bridges to nowhere, ethanol plants and pipelines that accelerate global warming, tax breaks for over-leveraged McMansion builders and burden-some new long-term federal entitlements -would be worse than mere waste.

  • Origin and expansion of yoga. 
  • Contribution of Ramdev for popularising yoga. 
  • Yoga classified into four types. 
  • Benefits of yoga in our physical, mental and spiritual health.

Yoga is an art and science of healthy living which focuses on creating a harmony between the mind and body. The word 'Yoga' is derived from the Sanskrit root `Yuy, which means 'to join' or 'to yoke' or 'to unite'. The practice of Yoga leads to the union of individual consciousness with that of the universal consciousness, indicating a perfect harmony between the mind and body, man and the nature.

According to the modern scientists, everything in the universe is iust a manifestation of the same quantum firmament. One who experiences this oneness of existence is said to be in yoga and is termed as a yogi, having attained a state of freedom referred to as mukti, nirvana or moksha. Thus, the aim of Yoga is selfrealisation, to overcome all kinds of sufferings and leading to the 'state of liberation' (Moksha) or 'freedom' (Kaivalya).
