You have to pass in theTest of English as well as the Descriptive paper to qualify in the writtenexamination.

THERE WILL BE PENALTYFOR WRONG ANSWERS MARKED BY YOU IN THE OBJECTIVE TEST. There are fivealternatives in every question of a test. For each question for which a wronganswer has been given by you, one-fourth or 0.25 of the marks assigned to thatquestion will be deducted as penalty.

If aquestion is left blank, i.e. no answer is given by you,there will be no penalty for that question. If the total of the penalty for atest is in fraction, if will be rounded off to the nearest integer. You shouldtherefore be careful in marking your answers.

All rough work should bedone only on the Test Booklet itself.

More information on theObjective Tests and Descriptive Paper along with sample questions are theiranswers is given in the following papers.


Before you begin to readthe lessons or start answering the questions given here in the book which youare now holding in your hands, you had better wait for a minute and peruse thefew lines given hereunder.

You are perhaps aware that the examination consists of 4 partscomprising 200 questions which should be answered in 95 minutes. It means thatyou must answer a question in less than half a minute. Certainly it is not aneasy task to do it and do it rightly at the same time. Hence it becomesessential to analyze and understand the format of the question paper.

Thefirst 50 questions constitute the Test of Reasoning, 15 ofwhich are verbal and the remaining 35, non-verbal. In the 1sttype, questions are set on: Analogy,Spotting the odd man out, Completing a number series, Coding and decoding ofinformation, Calculating days and dates and lastly identifying theblood-relationship. The remaining 35non-verbal questions are based on problem figures to solve which you need quicksense of perception and immediate application.

And then the next 50 questions areon English Language. In this section, you have to locate errors in grammar or usage, answer the questionsunder the given passage, supply antonyms or synonyms, arrange the jumbledsentences and finally complete the given passage with alternate choices givenunderneath.

In the Test on Numerical Ability,questions are set on familiar topics like Ratio and Proportion, Time and Work, Time and Distance,Percentages, Interest, Fractions and the like. This again can broadly be divided into two types : the first with35 questions, all based on numerical calculation, comes under the type of simplification, thesecond, with 15 questions, coming under verbal type deals with more puzzling problems. Here it is thoroughness in the grasp of the subject and quicknessin problem solving techniques that it tested. And to this end, not only here,but wherever it is necessary, the book offers numerous examples and practiceproblems.

The last part deals with Clerical Aptitude. The50 questions coming under this section can be placed into 4 categories. In thefirst there are 35 addresses, each correct address is followed by 3 incorrect ones (in somedetail) and one correct one. Your job is to locate the correct address. The next15 questions can come in the type of arranging the material. If a series of numbers are given, yourimmediate job is to visualize them in ascending / descending order; if wordsare given, to place them in alphabetical order; if some coding system is given,to decode them – words into numbers or numbers into words; if some ungroupeddata are given, to classify them under different categories. This indeed is a herculian task and evenif you set apart 15 minutes for this section, which could be the maximum time,it would still be impossible to score all correct. And this incidentally bringsto the question of time management.

You may devote roughly :

30 minutes to the Test of Reasoning

30 minutes to the Test of Numerical Ability

and 20minutes to English & 15 minutes to Clerical Aptitude.

It is not only becausethe first two are scoring, topics, but also because high priority and maximummarks are allotted to these two. The ratio of marks is 2 : 2 : 1 for theTest of Reasoning, Numerical Ability and Clerical Aptitude respectively whileno specified marks are set apart for the test of English language. No doubt you have to score a minimum marks in it whereas you haveto get 80% in all the other sections, to qualify yourself for another and fifty test on Descriptive type paper where you have to answer 3 out 4 questions in 45 minutes in yourchosen language –English / Hindi/ Regional language, of course all questionsin the same language. Though the test is intended to assess your languageskills, abilities of clear and correct expression, faculties of understandingand analyzing problem areas, and offering practical suggestions and solutions,it is enough if you score a minimum pass marks – these marks and your marks inthe English test mentioned above in the objective type, are not added to youraggregate marks to arrive at the final ranking. The marks scored in other subjects and your performance in theinterview will alone qualify you for the final selection.

It does not mean that you can afford to ignore the language test.There is a prescribed minimum which you should attain, to get the green signal,and for that you need to work hard and practise well.

And to this end, the book offers numerous examples. It is upto you to make the best use of these and make a thoroughpreparation.

And now you can begin your work with the utmost sincerity andseriousness. Remember that well begun is half done.

Wish you good luck.

Yours in service,
