IBPS RRB PO Exam 2017 के लिए अंग्रेजी के प्रश्न

Dear Students,

English Questions For IBPS RRB PO Exam 2017

English Section is a topic that is feared by most of the candidates appearing in the IBPS RRB Mains Exam. Though the sheer number of concepts and rules may seem intimidating at first, with discipline and the right approach, it is not difficult to master these concepts and their application to questions. Through such English Quizzes, we will provide you all types of high-level questions to ace the, word usage, new pattern English section of banking exams.

Directions (1-10): Read the following passage carefully and answer these questions. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.


Coffee and tea came to be popular in India essentially due to colonial history. They are both imports into our country, and we now grow them in large plantations. Today, Darjeeling Tea and Coorg Coffee are world famous and coveted. Yet, an equally popular drink, cocoa, has not became so popular. All we do is, pretty much to eat it in the solid, processed form as chocolate bars, but not as a Cuppa. Colonial history has a role in the popularisation of cocoa too, but elsewhere. Cocoa had first discovered and coveted by the Mayan civilisation of Central America. The Mayans gave the plant (and its seeds) the name cocoa (or cacao), meaning ‘The Food of the Gods’. Cocoa seeds were used in family and community functions, and even used as currency. The Aztec Indians there made a drink with cocoa powder, chilli, musk and honey, calling it Chocolatl or beaten drink; hence the name chocolate.

When the Spanish colonised much of the Americas, they popularised and monopolised cocoa, making its production a well guarded secret as they brought it to Europe. Cocoa became the drink of the super rich. A lot of romance and class was associated with it. Love songs, courting the beloved, have been written and singing (and are still done) in Europe and America. But as the Industrial Revolution made machines popular, the grinding of cocoa seeds in large amounts and making them available to “all and sundry” made cocoa or hot chocolate lose their fancy.

Today, while 10 million tons of coffee and 5 million tons of tea are produced yearly across the world, cocoa has a production of about 3 million tons. Yet, this third-in-line beverage tops the other two in health benefits. Indeed, much to the consternation of many in South India, we need to point out that coffee is a drug, albeit a mild one, because of the caffeine it contains. Because of this, many people have taken to drinking “decaf” coffee (which is neither here nor there!). Tea, on the other hand, is now recognised to be a health drink, with its content of molecules of the so called flavonoid family acting as antioxidants and cell-protecting molecules (True, it too has caffeine and theobromine, but much less than coffee). But it is cocoa that tops the list as the healthiest drink. Yet it has not become as popular as tea and coffee — a quirk of history based on who our colonials were!
