SBI PO Exam Analysis: Questions Asked From English

READING COMPREHENSION 

Over a couple of days in February, hundreds of thousands of point-of-sale printers in restaurants around the world began behaving strangely. Some churned out bizarre pictures of computers and giant robots signed, “with love from the hacker God himself”. Some informed their owners that, “YOUR PRINTER HAS BEEN PWND’D”. Some told them, “For the love of God, please close this port”. When the hacker God gave an interview to Motherboard, a technology website, he claimed to be a British secondary-school pupil by the name of “Stackoverflowin”. Annoyed by the parlous state of computer security, he had, he claimed, decided to perform a public service by demonstrating just how easy it was to seize control.
Not all hackers are so public-spirited, and 2016 was a bonanza for those who are not. In February of that year cyber-crooks stole $81m directly from the central bank of Bangladesh—and would have got away with more were it not for a crucial typo. In August America’s National Security Agency (NSA) saw its own hacking tools leaked all over the internet by a group calling themselves the Shadow Brokers. (The CIA suffered a similar indignity this March.) In October a piece of software called Mirai was used to flood Dyn, an internet infrastructure company, with so much meaningless traffic that websites such as Twitter and Reddit were made inaccessible to many users. And the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s e-mail servers and the subsequent leaking of embarrassing communications seems to have been part of an attempt to influence the outcome of the American elections.
Away from matters of great scale and grand strategy, most hacking is either show-off vandalism or simply criminal. It is also increasingly easy. Obscure forums oil the trade in stolen credit-card details, sold in batches of thousands at a time. Data-dealers hawk “exploits”: flaws in code that allow malicious attackers to subvert systems. You can also buy “ransomware”, with which to encrypt photos and documents on victims’ computers before charging them for the key that will unscramble the data. So sophisticated are these facilitating markets that coding skills are now entirely optional. Botnets—flocks of compromised computers created by software like Mirai, which can then be used to flood websites with traffic, knocking them offline until a ransom is paid—can be rented by the hour. Just like a legitimate business, the bot-herders will, for a few dollars extra, provide technical support if anything goes wrong.
The total cost of all this hacking is anyone’s guess (most small attacks, and many big ones, go unreported). But all agree it is likely to rise, because the scope for malice is about to expand remarkably. “We are building a world-sized robot,” says Bruce Schneier, a security analyst, in the shape of the “Internet of Things”. The IoT is a buzz-phrase used to describe the computerisation of everything from cars and electricity meters to children’s toys, medical devices and light bulbs. In 2015 a group of computer-security researchers demonstrated that it was possible to take remote control of certain Jeep cars. When the Mirai malware is used to build a botnet it seeks out devices such as video recorders and webcams; the botnet for fridges is just around the corner.

  • Amit Singh

    Anyone tell expected cut-off for SBI Po prelims??

    • Hi Amit, apologies for the late reply. The expected cutoff for UR category should be between 63 and 70.

      • Amit Singh

        Ma’am I think this is little bit high. It could not be more than 55 for UR category. Anyway, let’s see what happens.

        • Hence a gap of +/- 5 marks Amit. How much did you attempt ?

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Akriti ma’am plz share some strategies and tips for sbi po mains.

      • bloddy killer

        Are u kidding

        • We don’t crack jokes here pal.
          The expected cutoff always keeps a gap of =/- 5-10 marks. So that has been considered. The paper was simple than last year and the cutoff will go higher too.

          Having said that, I’d like to clarify that we make sure that we stay as precise as possible to the actual cutoff.

          Yesterday for NIACL AO cutoff that was issued, our predictions were precise and we’re happy about it.

          So if you beg to differ, no issues because you might have other parameters in mind but the cutoff for UR category will not go less than 63.

          • Niti Sidhu

            Mam I cleared NIACL. Ab Mains ke liye guide karo. Prelims me apke Quant ke guidance ne bhaut help kiya.

            Marks kab aege ?

          • Many congratulations.

            Start preparing for Mains immediately because you don’t have much time. I’m happy we could help.
            Whatever queries you have, feel free to post on our articles on Mains.

            There is no official confirmation on Assistant marks yet so can’t say. The AO marks were released yesterday.

          • bloddy killer

            cutoff for UR can,t be more than 55+ I can guratee it and for OBC ki cutoff will not be more than 50 . lets wait and watch

          • bloddy killer

            Ma,am may be u have talked to those people who r in the list of toppers. so just don,t let the predicted result take side of toppers. i hope next time you will tell most approximate cutoff. and who says that if your predictions are ±10 form cutoff then you are telling the expected cutoff you are just giving your opinion That how was paper according to you( Means if you were there then what you can do). predictions means Max ±5 variation form official cutoff. Thanks for your opinion.

        • Niti Sidhu

          First I used to feel cutoff kam jaegi but jisse bhi baat kro sabne bhaut zada attempt kiya hai and accuracy bhi bhaut hai so i don’t think 60 se kaam jaegi cutoff. Baki toh SBI jaane

          • How much did you attempt ?

          • bloddy killer

            nope

          • bloddy killer

            overall utoff will bw around 48-51 for Gen. 45-48 for OBC and so on

  • Amit Singh

    I attempted 52 questions in SC category with 90% accuracy. Is there any chance for mains of SBI Po?

  • Karan

    Inequality in maths means quadratic inequality?? Anyone??

    • Amit Singh

      Yes

    • Yes Karan

      • karan

        Thank you

  • Rahul Agrawal

    Hi Everyone,

    I attended the paper in first shift today and the paper was easy except reasoning, which was a bit lengthy and tricky! My attempts below :

    English – 24
    Maths – 23
    Reasoning – 21
    Total – 68

    The cut-off is expected to be on a higher side (not 60 or 70 as predicted by many aspirants). I’m assuming the cut-off to be anywhere between 52-54 for a General category candidate.

    Feel free to get in touch with me should you’ve any questions!

    Best,
    Rahul

    • Hey thanks for that insight Rahul.
      I wish you my best 🙂

      • Rahul Agrawal

        Thanks much, Akriti.. Have a good rest of the day!

        • You too. Best wishes.

      • Rahul Agrawal

        Requesting you to suggest some good source for preparing the general awareness/knowledge section..

        • We’ll be posting exclusive write ups starting Tuesday for SBI PO Mains. I’ll share the links. Do read.

          • Rahul Agrawal

            Great, I surely will:) Thank you! I just want to let you know that you are doing an amazing job by helping thousands of aspirants realise their dreams! Hats off to you..

          • Hats off to aspirants like you sharing genuine insights and providing 100% honest feedback 🙂

            Hey an aspirant asked the following question –
            2*2+5x+2

            Would you like to share the solution. I’m busy compiling questions across shifts so don’t have the time before evening. In case you have the time, do solve .

          • Rahul Agrawal

            The question seems incorrect. If you meant, 2*2+5*2, the answer should be 14. If x is a variable (2*2+5x+2 = 0), the answer should be -6/5 that is -1.20

          • Yep. Will check it in detail later. You have a productive day and work very hard for Mains. Best wishes.

          • Rahul Agrawal

            Sure, thanks!

    • Gemini⭐Starbucks

      post cloze test if possible

      • Rahul Agrawal

        Don’t remember the exact passage but the cloze test was easy. This time SBI has also given one option from their side for each blank and you have to identify if that option is suitable or not. If yes, you have to choose option e otherwise the correct option.

        First sentence was: Nowadays a lot of…… (importance) has been given on the importance of education.

        Options:

        A) Value
        B) Emphasis
        C) Credit
        D) Pressure
        E) The given choice is correct

        Clearly, the answer was Option B – Emphasis.

        I hope that helps!

        • Gemini⭐Starbucks

          thanks….i had my exam in that shift only..that’s y i was asking

        • Chanandler Bong

          If you had your exam in the 1st shift 1slot then this is not the cloze test. It was different because 1st ques me same provided option hi fit ho raha tha

          • Hey can you provide us the cloze passage ?

          • Chanandler Bong

          • Rahul Agrawal

            Akriti,

            Does that mean that you’re predicting the cut-off to be more than 65?

            Rahul

  • Rishi Shrivastava

    Can you tell me source of rc ???

    • Hi Rishi,

      The RC for Shift 1 has been taken from ‘The Economist’

  • chetan sagar

    1.Inequalities me sign the ya symbol?
    2.Aur approximation zyada calculative thi kya?
    3.comprehension economics se related tha ya literature se?

    • Hi Chetan
      Comprehension was on technology. I’ve shared the comprehension passage above that was asked in this shift. Kindly read it. It’ll help you.

      Approximation was moderate
      Inequalities, I’ll have to check and let you know.

      We’re constantly uploading questions as and when we receive them. So keep checking above.

      • chetan sagar

        Thank you. 🙂

        • You’re very welcome.

    • Rahul Agrawal

      Chetan,

      Responses below based on 1st shift today:

      1. Inequalities had both sign and symbol.

      2. Approximations were the easiest in maths section.

      3. Passage was again on hacking. Very simple synonyms and antonyms like fat, leaked etc.

      4. Additionally, cloze test was easy.

      An attempt of 20-25 in English was definitely possible in the 1st slot today.

      Thanks,
      Rahul

  • vishal

    Can we expect some changes in upcoming shifts?.??

    • Hi Vishal

      See the overall nature of the exam will remain the same because SBI will have to provide a level playing field to all candidates. However minor fluctuations can vary. For example, the DI in shift 2 was more calculative and time consuming than shift 1.

    • Niyati Srivastav

      I just gave my paper I found reasoning more tough than yesterday

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Ok i will follow this… Thank you so much

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            if u r appearing niacl assistant mains then even that also will enable u..

          • SANDIPA DAS

            I have not qualified that exam

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Sbi po mains will be the 1st ever 2nd level exam for me

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            Ohk.. can understand the tough pressure u r in, as this is your first time…what was ur niacl attempt in pre??
            SBI po mains wont be easy… that’s sure..solve floor puzzle with 2 variable more, ages puzzle and north south puzzle..
            Learn one thing u have to play safe game in mains get the sectional done with full or 95% accuracy..maybe cut off was 70 last year of genreal..just verify..

            See what is ur weak area..

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Yes it was 70 last year, i could attempt 65 in niacl assistant and 57 in sbi.. I find the new pattern eng questions difficult and analytical reasoning

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            i think niacl cut off is at least 65 or so…
            Refer ” MK Pandey, analytical reasoning ” for analytical reasoning..
            Theoretical and nicely explained
            And as i said your sbi po pre accuracy is fantastic. Attempt 57 and score 55.5..Nice job (Y)

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Bt i have BOB po on 27th

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Which mock test do you do you suggest? I have bought 2 oliveboard and mahendra’s.
            I find oliveboard mock test to be quite difficult spcly quant

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            I will recommend oliveboard as its difficulty mathches and prepares u for exam. Solve all its papers of package. They set papers of same level which is gng to come or maybe even higher level than that.
            Always remember that the more difficult qns and papers u solve, the more preparation u have done in a right manner

          • SANDIPA DAS

            And can you suggest me a website from where i can download past questions as i an unsure about the difficulty level

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            gradeup, bankersadda may provide it if u type on google sbi po mains question paper 2016

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Thank you so much

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Plz tell me the kind of questions come under comp aptitude, DFD etc

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            In DFD, u will be given chart and u need to analyse qns. My advice (if you have not done it before)
            solve more focus on puzzles and analytical reasoning..as it has more weightage..

          • SANDIPA DAS

            And can you suggest me a website from where i can download past questions as i an unsure about the difficulty level

          • SANDIPA DAS

            For the descriptive paper, can i mail you some of my writings? say two or three, because i am not able to self analyse my flaws. Somehow i always feel i am not able to do away with redundancy of points. Worried

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            sure, mail me ur writings..will analyse as i see it..just one thing dont think too much also..
            Just remember ur accuracy in Prelims..Have that approach..

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Should i post here on disqus or e mail you?

          • Chandan Salgaonkar

            email me

          • SANDIPA DAS

            Your mail id plz
