    • Arrange in order 1) Mr.Delly was the owner of car wash center and use to pay them peanuts which he thought was the only was of working of car wash center. 2) Ethan & Sammy worked at car wash center. 3)one day Sammy went to bank for a loan but bank refused it and asked him to bring something else:money 4) both Mr.delly and Sammy were not introduced to money hence used peanut as medium for paying. 5)Sammy was heart broken.

      • Ethan & Sammy worked at car wash center
        Mr.Delly was the owner of car wash center and use to pay them peanuts which he thought was the only was of working of car wash center
        both Mr.delly and Sammy were not introduced to money hence used peanut as medium for paying.
        one day Sammy went to bank for a loan but bank refused it and asked him to bring something else:money
        Sammy was heart broken.

  19. My exam was on 6th, Dec 8 o’clock shift. Even though I went to the exam without any preparation (since I had my M.Tech exams going on), I could attempt around 60 questions which definitely is said to be a good try. Some months ago, I had given IBPS PO also and that was obviously very tough. I found especially the English Section difficult in PO’s exam and in case of this Clerk exam that was the most easiest one.
    I expect 24/30 in the English Section. Other sections were also moderate..I hope I can clear the exam this time..lets see..

    • Nice analysis Reshma. You will be able to clear overall cutoff as well as sectional cutoff very easily. start preparing for mains Asap.

  20. I had attempted 73 ques.. approx 28-29 in english and reasoning each. But attempted 17 ques in maths but I am sure 15 will be correct n other ques of other sections will also be correct. So is it possibility that I clear the prelims.
