RC(Reading Comprehension) Questions for SSC CGL Prelims 2018-2019

Q1. - A passage is given with 1 question following it. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
Many plays and films have depicted the life story of Gautama Buddha, but what made the musical play The Way Across unique was its regional focus. Directed by G. Kumara Swamy, the play adapted from the book Telangana lo Buddhism focused on the enlightenment of a cursed Brahmin Bawari and his 16 curious disciples willing to understand the deeper truths of birth, death, rebirth and brotherhood.
From the impressive use of projector visuals, music and shadow-play, there was every effort to lend authenticity to the theme. Despite the play's focus on Telangana, the native essence was compromised, due to the English rendition (done for a wider reach). The lines appeared jaded with literal translations. The honest performances from the crew impacted only on a surface-level. Kiran Kumar's Bawari act and Krishna Chaitanya Joshi as Pingiya (said to have propagated Buddhism from Telangana to several regions across South India) grab your attention.
What was sacrificed to keep the play in English?
Options:
1) A wide r audience
2) Authenticity
3) Depiction of reality
4) A bit of native esse nce
Correct Answer: A bit of native essence

Unseen Passage for CGL Tier-01 2018

Q1. - A passage is given with 1 question following it. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
Everyone expected Mary Zophres to win for her retro-revival Technicolor clothes in La La Land — the eventual winner, Colleen Atwood for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, seemed surprised too. But as other awards began to slip away from the well-reviewed musical, a theme could be teased out. What is Fantastic Beasts if not a plea for equal treatment of people, magical or otherwise? Then, Arrival, a film about the inherent benignity of aliens (read immigrants) won for Best Sound Editing. Hacksaw Ridge, which is, in a way, an anti-guns movie, won in two categories. Fences, about an African-American father who fears racial discrimination, took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
Earlier, Moonlight, featuring two minority communities (black and gay), won for Best Supporting Actor. This turned out to be one of those years the Oscar voter was underestimated. As a majority of voters are actors, there was the tendency to think they'd reward La La Land, a celebration of creation: the heroine wants to make movies, the hero wants to make jazz. It looked like the year of The Artist all over again.
Colleen Atwood won which Award?
Options:
1) Best Co stume Design for La La Land
2) Best Supporting Actor for Fantastic B easts and Where to Find Them
3) Best Supporting Actor for La La Land
4) Best Costume Design for Fantastic Be asts and Where to Find Them
Correct Answer: Best Costume Design for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Reading Comprehension (RC) for SSC CGL Tier-01 2018

Q1. - A passage is given with 1 question following it. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
Band, Bajaa, Boys! breaks clichés in Indian writing in English. The story is set in a small town. The smart 20-year-old Binny Bajpai wants to choose her match from a range of quirky characters. It is peppered with the language we speak, i.e. Hinglish. And the book is packed with humour, something of a rarity in India. Rachna Singh says this book is closest to her heart.
"When I started writing humour, it was mostly anecdotal. I had initially started to write a serious book with a lot of psychological undertones to it. But then Shinie Anthony called to meet me. She said 'why would you want to write something so serious? If you are good at humour, stick to it.' The other advice she gave was not to give myself away in small pieces. I took up the challenge and wrote one chapter and from there the story flowed." The journey of writing the book was, however, marked by a difficult period in Rachna's life. She was diagnosed with cancer. But that did not deter her.
What is 'Band, Bajaa, Boys!'?             
Options:
1) A book by an Indian writer written in English
2) A Bollywood movie
3) A bilingual play
4) An autobiograp hy of a girl looking for a suitable boy
Correct Answer: A book by an Indian writer written in English

Question No.-17 | XAT 2017 Paper | VA and LA

Actual Question of XAT

Directions: Analyse the passage below and answer the question that follows:

It's taken me 60 years, but I had an epiphany recently: Everything, without exception, requires additional energy and order to maintain itself. I knew this is the abstract as the famous second law of thermodynamics, which states that everything is falling apart slowly. This realization is not just the lament of a person getting order. Long ago I learnt that even the most inanimate things we know of - stone, iron columns, copper pipes, gravel roads, a piece of paper - won't last very long without attention and fixing and the loan of additional order. Existence, it seems, is chiefly maintenance.

What has surprised me recently is how unstable even the intangible is. Keeping a website or a software program afloat is like keeping a yacht afloat. It is a black hole for attention. I can understand why a mechanical device like a pump would break down after a while - moisture rusts metal or the air oxidizes membranes, or lubricant evaporates, all of which require repair. But I wasn't thinking that the nonmaterial world of bits would also degrade. What's to break? Apparently everything.

Brand-new computer will ossify. Apps weaken with use. Code corrodes. Fresh software just released will immediately begin to fray. On their own - nothing you did. The more complex the gear, the more(not less) attention it will require. The natural inclination toward change is inescapable, even for the most abstract entities we know of : bits.

And then there is the assault of the changing digital landscape. When everything around you is upgrading, this puts pressure on your digital system and necessitates maintenance. You may not want to upgrade, but you must because everything else is. Its an upgrade arms race.

XAT 2017 Paper | VA and LA | Question No.- 02

Actual Question of XAT

Directions: Read the following excerpt and answer the question that follows:

Fragrant with steam
were the days and nights red
with any braziers
in the beloved house
of my father my mother

Question is: Which of the following options is the closest expression of the poet's feeling?

Options are:

Option(a): The house was located in the beautiful settings probably surrounded by flowers in the mountain.

Option(b): The ancestral home was probably the most important house in the community.

Option(c): The poet fondly recalls the pleasant climate enjoyed day and night.

Option(d): The poet misses the braziers and steam she had enjoyed during her childhood.

Option(e): Everything about the house felt special because of her parents love for her.

And then there is the assault of the changing digital landscape. When everything around you is upgrading, this puts pressure on your digital system and necessitates maintenance. You may not want to upgrade, but you must because everything else is. Its an upgrade arms race.

Verbal and Logical Ability | XAT 2017 Paper | Question No.-15

Actual Question of XAT

Directions: Analyse the passage below and answer the question that follows:

It's taken me 60 years, but I had an epiphany recently: Everything, without exception, requires additional energy and order to maintain itself. I knew this is the abstract as the famous second law of thermodynamics, which states that everything is falling apart slowly. This realization is not just the lament of a person getting order. Long ago I learnt that even the most inanimate things we know of - stone, iron columns, copper pipes, gravel roads, a piece of paper - won't last very long without attention and fixing and the loan of additional order. Existence, it seems, is chiefly maintenance.

What has surprised me recently is how unstable even the intangible is. Keeping a website or a software program afloat is like keeping a yacht afloat. It is a black hole for attention. I can understand why a mechanical device like a pump would break down after a while - moisture rusts metal or the air oxidizes membranes, or lubricant evaporates, all of which require repair. But I wasn't thinking that the nonmaterial world of bits would also degrade. What's to break? Apparently everything.

Brand-new computer will ossify. Apps weaken with use. Code corrodes. Fresh software just released will immediately begin to fray. On their own - nothing you did. The more complex the gear, the more(not less) attention it will require. The natural inclination toward change is inescapable, even for the most abstract entities we know of : bits.

And then there is the assault of the changing digital landscape. When everything around you is upgrading, this puts pressure on your digital system and necessitates maintenance. You may not want to upgrade, but you must because everything else is. Its an upgrade arms race.

Actual Question of XAT

Directions: Read the following paragraphs and answer the question that follows:

The current trend indicates that food and vegetable inflations continue to be pain points. Food inflation rose to 7.79 percent in June from 7.47 percent, and vegetable inflation rose to 14.74 percent from 10.85 percent. In the weeks ahead, the volatile food inflation will determine the course of overall inflation.

For RBI too, the trend is a concern since under the current agreement with the government, if the inflation exceeds 11 percent it will have to explain to the government why it could not be contained(the lower limit is 2 percent).

Options are:

Option(a): The first paragraph states a cause and the second illustrates the effect.

Option(b): The first paragraph provides information and the second highlights potential application of the information.

Option(c): The first paragraph is an assertion and the second provides an illustration of that assertion.
