English Test for IBPS Clerk 2018 Prelim Exam Set – 25

Directions(1-5): In each question, a sentence is given followed by a blank. Each blank is followed by three options and you have to determine which option can be used in place of blank to make it a meaningful sentence and mark it as your answer.

  1. Today’s Tories look more divided than Labour, but that is because a governing party has to do Brexit, while the opposition only has to talk about it. May has made unpopular choices that Jeremy Corbyn pretends do not need making. Labour’s policy is to engineer a general election, win it, then _________ an alchemist Brexit that keeps the benefits of the single market without the obligations of EU membership.
    a. make up
    b. lay waste
    c. cook up

    Both a & b
    Both b & c
    Both c & a
    Only b
    All are Correct
    Option C

     

  2. Momentum had elsewhere been criticised for picking the low-hanging fruit of a lizard conspiracist, rather than taking on someone, say, closer to the Labour home. But this seems part of the strategy: using the Icke focus to enable a wider discussion of the use, amid the left, of classic antisemitic tropes involving, for example, the Rothchild family. It was perhaps also intended to _________ the conspiracists in their ranks – although the scale of the problem exposed has doubtless come as a surprise.
    a. blighted out
    b. flush out
    c. draw out

    Both a & b
    Both b & c
    Both c & a
    Only a
    All are Correct
    Option B

     

  3. There’s much to ponder and revisit, while the collection continues to grow. Like postcards from an old friend, they invite us to pause, _________ and savour life. In a BBC profile last month, AN Wilson implored viewers to revisit the verse of TS Eliot, arguing that the poet’s themes of time and memory and belief are as relevant now as when written in the 20th century. He’s right, and similarly the letters from Cave bring solace in a tumultuous age, and perhaps also decades from now.
    a. look up
    b. perk up
    c. deal with it

    Both a & b
    Both b & c
    Both c & a
    Only a
    All are Correct
    Option A

     

  4. The far-right activist Tommy Robinson will march on London under the banner of “Brexit Betrayal” on Sunday 9 December – just two days before the parliamentary _________ Theresa May’s deal. The demonstration represents the real-life, undeniable intersection of the Brexit project and the far right. The response of both the left and the anti-Brexit movement could define them for years to come.
    a. vote at
    b. cast on
    c. vote on

    Both a & b
    Both b & c
    Both c & a
    Only c
    All are Correct
    Option D

     

  5. The mobilisation of the far right on the eve of the parliamentary vote on May’s deal presents the burgeoning anti-Brexit movement with a test and an opportunity. Just over a month ago, 700,000 people marched for a people’s vote. Another Europe is Possible has, along with a series of prominent left figures, _________ an explicitly anti-Brexit mobilisation on 9 December, which will build numbers for a joint general anti-fascist protest. If remainers mobilise, they could dwarf the pro-Brexit far right.
    a. productive for
    b. called for
    c. called up

    Both a & b
    Both b & c
    Both c & a
    Only a
    All are Correct
    Option B
