    In Ques 4 ,
    To penalize listed companies in case they violate securities law SEBI has allowed bourses which is a part of efforts to further empower stock exchange

    Suraj sir plz check

    1. Suraj

      no..
      To penalize listed companies in case they violate securities law SEBI has allowed bourses which is a part of efforts to further empower stock exchange

      what has SEBI allowed?? it should come next.. just after SEBI has allowed bourses…. But that statement is already used in the beginning… Isliye sentence ka meaning form nhi ho rha…

      1. DJ Waley Babu? ?Ritesh

        ok .. but not cleared sir :/

        1. Suraj

          agar kisi ko kuch allow kr rhe hai, to the next statement me batana padega ki kya allow kiya hai,, warna sentence incomplete reh jayega..
          in ur sentence, kya allow kiya hai wo starting me hi mention ho gya hai,,, aur baad me likha hai ki SEBi has allowed… but isse dono ka link nhi ban raha hai ki, SEBI ne yehi cheez k liye allow kiya hai(i.e to penalize listed companies)….. hence sentence complete sentence nhi ho rha hai.. a part is missing,, ki kya allow kiya…

          1. DJ Waley Babu? ?Ritesh

            Thank u so much sir 🙂

    isme..

    1. Suraj

      The step was taken.. but which step was taken??? it should be mentioned….

      1. Learnu banegi PNB PO :))

        The step was taken by the government barely after a week……

        1. Suraj

          yes but which step.. how will u join it with the main part that his tenure was curtalied?

          1. Learnu banegi PNB PO :))

            hmmm..
            The step was taken by the government barely after a week when Ajay tyagi name was announced as succeder of U.k. sinha.

            You are right sir,
            Here we can not add these lines “curtailed by two years”.

          2. Suraj

            yes.. here complete meaning of the statement is not coming out.. statement means ki Ajay Tyagi ka tenure pehle 5 years ka tha, ab usko 2 years reduce kr k 3 yers kr diye hai.. so this is not correct..

            jo bhi sentence bane, it should give the complete meaning of the original text

          3. Learnu banegi PNB PO :))

            Okay..:)

    1. Suraj

      in the explanation , it is mentioned why from (ii) we cannot form the sentence.. the sentence formed is grammatically correct.. but has two meanings.. so sentence with 2 meaning should nto be selcted as answer

  5. mahika :)

    sir plzz elucidate first five qus……how to attempt these qus ….

    1. Suraj

      there is no set rules to do such questions… the new pattern questions that has been introduced checks the understanding level of students… so u should start practising on understanding the context of a passage or any statement given in the question…
      now coming to sentence connectors, you have to make a sentence from the options given in the question , in such a way that it is grammatically correct + it gives the complete meaning of the statement given in the questions.. just keep practising… even if u r not able to do it by ur self.. see the answers, see how sentence has been formed in the explanation,, practice all the sets of connectors… when reading newspaper try to frame sentence in a different way, different from what it is written in the newspaper,, try to connect two lines fro newspaper… just keep practising .. there is no set rule

      1. mahika :)

      1. Ruksana

        the amendment has been made in the contract act……?

        1. Suraj

          The amendment will mean that , this amendment is already known to the people (because of use of ARTICLE THE,,) but this amendment is not known, i.i we are telling something new to the people.., so article AN should be present to start the statement as u are saying… hence this statement is wrong

          1. Ruksana

            oh ok got it..nyc exploitation thanx.
