NIACL Assistant Exam Analysis: English Language Details

Questions: 30 Marks: 30
Given that the NIACL Assistant prelims was being held for the first time, the English section was quite easy. Any aspirant having practiced basic vocabulary would have surely performed well. The comprehension passage was story based. It was about a traveler exploring the world.

NIACL Assistant Exam Analysis: English Comprehension Passage

Well, he set out, and he travelled a long way, and at last he came to a woman’s cottage that had some grass growing on the roof. And the woman was trying to get her cow to go up a ladder to the grass, and the poor thing durst not go. So the gentleman asked the woman what she was doing.

“Why, lookye,” she said, “look at all that beautiful grass. I’m going to get the cow on to the roof to eat it. She’ll be quite safe, for I shall tie a string round her neck, and pass it down the chimney, and tie it to my wrist as I go about the house, so she can’t fall off without my knowing it.” “Oh, you poor silly!” said the gentleman, “you should cut the grass and throw it down to the cow!”

But the woman thought it was easier to get the cow up the ladder than to get the grass down, so she pushed her and coaxed her and got her up, and tied a string round her neck, and passed it down the chimney, and fastened it to her own wrist. And the gentleman went on his way, but he hadn’t gone far when the cow tumbled off the roof, and hung by the string tied round her neck, and it strangled her. And the weight of the cow tied to her wrist pulled the woman up the chimney, and she stuck fast half-way and was smothered in the soot.
And the gentleman went on and on, and he went to an inn to stop the night, and they were so full at the inn that they had to put him in a double-bedded room, and another traveller was to sleep in the other bed. The other man was a very pleasant fellow, and they got very friendly together; but in the morning, when they were both getting up, the gentleman was surprised to see the other hang his trousers on the knobs of the chest of drawers and run across the room and try to jump into them, and he tried over and over again, and couldn’t manage it; and the gentleman wondered whatever he was doing it for.

At last he stopped and wiped his face with his handkerchief. “Oh dear,” he says, “I do think trousers are the most awkwardest kind of clothes that ever were. I can’t think who could have invented such things. It takes me the best part of an hour to get into mine every morning, and I get so hot! How do you manage yours?” So the gentleman burst out a-laughing, and showed him how to put them on; and he was very much obliged to him, and said he never should have thought of doing it that way.
Then the gentleman went on his travels again; and he came to a village, and outside the village there was a pond, and round the pond was a crowd of people. And they had got rakes, and brooms, and pitchforks, reaching into the pond; and the gentleman asked what was the matter. “Why,” they say, “matter enough! Moon’s tumbled into the pond, and we can’t rake her out anyhow!”

So the gentleman burst out a- laughing, and told them to look up into the sky, and that it was only the shadow in the water. But they wouldn’t listen to him, and abused him shamefully, and he got away as quick as he could.So there was a whole lot of sillies bigger than them three sillies at home. So the gentleman turned back home again and married the farmer’s daughter, and if they didn’t live happy for ever after, that’s nothing to do with you or me.

  1. My attempts in preliminary were 85 (bihar)
    And in mains unfortunately i did only 148…
    Any chance mam (akriti)…. ???

      • I do notice BJP-RSS fellows like you are generally pot bellied ugly Hindoos. With such fellows, I can understand with Hindoo girls take a shine to circumcised rough boys and prefer them. That of course enrages these Hindoo extremists and they claim it is a love jihad. They should ask why their Hindoo girls do not want them if given a choice…!.

  2. hey i dnt remember section wise attempts but i am sure they were more than 50% in each section..and overall i attempted 83 questions..are there any chances of mine to be selected for mains? and can you please post questions of paragraph which you have mentioned above?

  3. My exam was on shift 1. The cloze test which they gave at that time is shared on your website. The traveller who observed the foolish people in the world while travelling.

  4. My attempt was Reasoning 25 Quantitative aptitude 22 English 30.
    Reasoning and Quantitative aptitude 100% accuracy English 80% accuracy

  5. Do I have any chance to clear the prelims? I attempted 77 with 90% accuracy. I am from General category in West Bengal.

    • Yes. I insist start preparing for Mains at the earliest.
      If you remember the cloze test from today, please share. We haven’t been able to confirm the correct passage from any student.

  6. The cut off will be from 80-85, this paper was very easy as compared to RBI assistant which was also very easy and its cut off was 76, most of students from my centre have 90+ attempts, Mock up please increase ur good attempt section as paper was very easy

    • As per me , it won’t cross 75 for general. But lets see how NIACL sees it. English and Reasoning were quite simple. Quant. was doable too but was surely calculative. More than the complexity level of the exam, the accuracy level of students across states decides the cutoff, not to forget the number of vacancies as well.

      But thank you for your feedback. Let us wait for inputs. We’ll surely update it of need be.
      Best wishes for your result.

  7. A and B together complete work in 22.5 days.B takes 24hours more than A to complete the same amount of work .How much time alone A takes to complete the work ?
    What is the Solution?

  9. If it is said the english book is kept 2 books above the hindi book then how many books r there between them? 1 or 2?

        • If it is said English book is 2 boks above Hindi book then u have to count directly, which means only 1 book willl be in between.
          If it is said there are 2 books between English & Hindi book, then it means definitely 2 books are in between Eng & Hindi books.
          Always check how the sentence is framed…

          • Thank you for your explanation Sir.. Plz tell me if we can use this for counting days and floors also?

            like if it is said 2 days after Sunday, then it will mean tuesday, leaving only monday in between?

          • If it is said 2 days after Sunday, then yes, it will be tuesday which means leaving monday. Had u appeared NIACL assistant prelims? And SBI PO looking for?

            As for today, yes we did commit a mistake and accepted it. Deleting the post would have been an easy option. Deleting and blocking comments would have been an even easier option but we didn’t do any of it. Instead we chose to inform our users the truth because many of them were getting paranoid that the paper was today.

    • Hi Sandhya, no there is no exam today and anyone saying that there is an exam is lying. We’ve put up the notice in the article above and apologize for the review published. Also, the miscreants who played a dangerous prank will be punished severely.

    • Hi Suresh, the above review is based on the inputs provided by some candidates. We are personally looking into the matter. If they fail to provide us with genuine admit cards in the next few minutes, we will deal with them severely.

      Also, if at all, there is any misinformation in the review above, I will personally update it. We respect our users and will never do anything to jeopardize their peace of mind. All we need from all of us is some time so that we can resolve the issue.

      Best wishes.

    • Manan don’t worry. I’m going to take this issue myself and will provide every sincere candidate the most relevant information. In case you don’t have your exam today, I insist go study. The exam is being conducted after 2 years that too in the new pattern so the competition will be fierce. So best wishes and do well.
