Many banking/insurance examinations were conducted recently and we got to see a variety of new pattern questions on the question paper. That the pattern is only getting complex and convoluted day by day, English Language is a section that nobody can give a cold shoulder to. The total number of questions in the English Language Section of LIC AAO Prelims Examination 2019 will be 30.

The trick to scoring good marks in English Section can vary from one person to another depending on her strengths and weaknesses. If your basics are clear, you can easily bag good marks in this section. Sometimes, even those, who can communicate very well in English, fail to perform to the best of their ability in competitive exams. If you do not want this to be the case with you, try building up a strong vocabulary, an effective knowledge of grammar, and efficient comprehension skills and be on the ball to attempt this section of LIC AAO Prelims Examination. Here are the most important topics that are likely to be asked in LIC AAO Prelims Examination 2019.

If you are not so good at grammar, then, you should attempt the reading comprehension first and proceed with Cloze Test and other miscellaneous topics like Error Detection, Para Jumbles, Phrase Replacement, Double Fillers, etc.  Reading comprehension too should be attempted in a way that you attempt questions based on vocab and phrases first and then the questions that need a deep penetration through the paragraphs. 

Next comes the error detection portion. To attempt maximum questions in errors, you need to work on parts of speech, adjective, and subject-verb agreement. Some errors may also be based on narration, so, if one doesn't want to miss out anything then he/she must have the knowledge of narration too. A similar topic is sentence correction/ improvement. So, these tips are going to help you out with sentence correction/ improvement as well.

The next important topic is Fillers. Generally, double fillers/ sentence/ multiple sentence fillers are asked but, this year there is a possibility of triple fillers also, as the difficulty level of exams has only been rising.  For fillers, you need to work on vocabulary as most of the questions are based on vocab only.

Next important topics are odd one out, para jumbles and match the columns. The good thing about para jumbles is that you can manage to do it even if you are weak in English, simply by making use of common sense, as it doesn't test your grammar or vocabulary, you just need to find the connection between two parts. Also, keep in mind that there has to be a continuation in the paragraph when you rearrange the sentences. 

The more you practice, the better you get. Knowledge is of no value unless you put it in practice. So, work hard, keep practicing, and everything will come up roses in the end. All the best!!
