ALL THE BEST


Hello and welcome to ExamPunditThis is Anubhab. I have been offline for past 2-3 days and Exampundit was also bit out of track for few days. Its simply because something HUGE is coming your way. But that’s not the main point here.

The reason Exampundit did not give any Good Quiz in the last 2-3 days so that you all don’t get demotivated and feel stressed.

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY and I am damn sure you all gonna rock!!

You have cleared the Prelims Exam which means you HAVE EARNED your SPOT for the Mains Exam. So just go for it and give it.

I know each and everyone of you have gone through a lot but never gave up. Trust me, you all will succeed. Just don’t stress yourself by thinking too much. Go with the flow and GIVE YOUR BEST SHOT EVER.

All the best.

May the Force be with You

English Quiz for IBPS PO Mains - Set 16


Hello and welcome to ExamPundit. Here is a set of English Quiz for IBPS PO Mains 2015.

Direction (Q. 1 - 10): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
The variety of life on Earth, its biological diversity is commonly referred to as biodiversity. The number of species of plants, animals, and microorganisms, the enormous diversity of genes in these species, the different ecosystems on the planet, such as deserts, rainforests and coral reefs are all part of a biologically diverse Earth. Biodiversity is not evenly distributed; rather it varies greatly across the globe as well as within regions. Among other factors, the diversity of all living things (biota) depends on temperature, precipitation, altitude, soils, geography and the presence of other species. The study of the spatial distribution of organisms, species, and ecosystems, is the science of biogeography. Diversity consistently measures higher in the tropics and in other localized regions and lower in Polar Regions generally. Rain forests that have had wet climates for a long time. Appropriate conservation and sustainable development strategies attempt to recognize this as being integral to any approach to preserving biodiversity. Almost all cultures have their roots in our biological diversity in some way or form. Declining biodiversity is therefore a concern for many reasons. It has long been feared that human activity is causing massive extinctions. Despite increased efforts at conservation, it has not been enough and biodiversity losses continue. The costs associated with deteriorating or vanishing ecosystems will be high. However, sustainable development and consumption would help avert ecological problems. Biodiversity boosts ecosystem productivity where each species, no matter how small, all have an important role to play. For example, a larger number of plant species means a greater variety of crops; greater species diversity ensures natural sustainability for all life forms; and healthy ecosystems can better withstand and recover from a variety of disasters. There is now unequivocal evidence that biodiversity loss reduces the efficiency by which ecological communities capture biologically essential resources, produce biomass, decompose and recycle biologically essential nutrients. There is mounting evidence that biodiversity increases the stability of ecosystem functions through time. Diverse communities are more productive because they contain key species that have a large influence on productivity, and differences in functional traits among organisms increase total resource capture. The impacts of diversity loss on ecological processes might be sufficiently large to rival the impacts of many other global drivers of environmental change. Maintaining multiple ecosystem processes at multiple places and times requires higher levels of biodiversity than does a single process at a single place and time. It plays a part in regulating the chemistry of our atmosphere and water supply. Biodiversity is directly involved in water purification, recycling nutrients and providing fertile soils. Experiments with controlled environments have shown that humans cannot easily build ecosystems to support human needs. And so, while we dominate this planet, we still need to preserve the diversity in wildlife. While there might be “survival of the fittest” within a given species, each species depends on the services provided by other species to ensure survival. It is a type of cooperation based on mutual survival.
