2. Regularly solve at least 20 English/Hindi Language questions and 3 to 5 Reading Comprehensions

Reading Comprehension tops the list of the important topics in the IBPS RRB English/Hindi Language section.

Solve at least 10 questions each from Grammar and Vocabulary topics to improve your memory, concepts, and learn new words.

However, in case a question is left blank or not answered, there will be no negative marking for it. In a computer-based exam, one will not have the option to go back once the allotted time is over.

4. Quick tips to solve important topic-wise questions in English Language

Quick tips to solve: Fill in the Blanks (use the elimination method to choose the correct option), Cloze Test (find the logical relation between all options while eliminating options), Para Jumbles (find the first sentence and concluding sentences to connect the fitting sequence), Sentence Correction (assess the grammar of the original sentence and eliminate options that grammatically incorrect), Spotting Error (spot the subject-verb agreement, read each individual part to spot further error), Reading Comprehension (solve antonym & synonym first, never use any knowledge outside the passage, grasp what the author is trying to say, spot keywords, phrases in notes sections).
