Rules to Solve Parajumbles With Examples

WHAT ARE PARAJUMBLES?

Para jumbles are the group of independent sentences usually 5 or six, which are altered and presented to us. It is our task to identify which one comes first, then next, and so on until we form a meaningful paragraph. We have done Para jumbles right from the schooling and yet it may seem a paramount task for some to rearrange them in a meaningful way. Para jumbles play vital role in breaking today’s bank exams. So let us break some of the myths involved in Para jumbles.
Parajumbles play a vital role in breaking today’s bank exams. So let us break some of the myths involved in Para jumbles.

MYTH 1: PARAJUMBLES ARE VERY DIFFICULT.

Yes, Para jumbles are difficult to crack if no proper guidance is given and who has a very low command in English. However, once if you follow strictly the rules given by us, it is like a walk in the park.

MYTH 2: IT HAS LOW WEIGHTAGE.

When it comes to bank exams, there is no concept of high weightage and low weightage in marks. Each marks are extremely crucial to clear this exam. Hence, Para jumbles have a significant weightage.

MYTH 3: PARAJUMBLES HAVE NO RULES.

Well, there are two ways to approach this. When one has a good command in English, it is subconsciously easy for them. However, do not worry; there are certain rules to overcome this. Let us grasp some strategy.

STRATEGY FOR PARAJUMBLES:


RULE 1: SEARCH FOR THE NAME:

Yes, you heard it right. In a group of sentences, some sentences start with the name of a person. If you see the name of a person, chances are high that, it would be the first sentence but not every time. So if you see the name of a person, boldly eliminate the other sentences.
Here are some of the examples:
  • He was looking forward to start the business. 
  • His birthday celebrations was done in a bad way. 
  • There was an unusual presence in the room 
  • Everyone is happy now. 

RULE 2: Search for the connecting words:

If you see a sentence that start with connecting words such as and, but, then and some words, then we can be 100% sure that it must not be the first sentence.
Here are some of the examples:
  • And, it has been in very good way to store the vegetables. 
  • Yet they showed no interest in the product. 
  • But, he was in not in a good mood to hear. 

RULE 3: USAGE OF ARTICLES:

Articles are of a great use in Para jumbles. The articles ‘a’ and ‘an’ are indefinite articles whereas the article ‘the’ is called definite article. When these articles are used in the beginning, they are great to start a passage.
EXAMPLES:
  • A boy and his friend were playing in the garden. 
  • The home rule was brought to an end by the president. 

Rule 4: USAGE OF PRONOUNS

Pronouns such as “he, she, they, it, him, her” are a great use for identifying the sentences in Para jumbles. The pronouns act as a great guide for Para jumbles. The pronouns denote the person who has been already introduced.
Examples:
  • They gathered the death certificates from the parents, going back as many years as they could. 
  • Hari decided to investigate on the matter. 
  • He enlisted the support of his students and colleagues from Stanford University. 

RULE 5: THE SECRET OF ELIMINATION METHOD.

One of the last resort in Para jumble is the rule of elimination method and this is the best method to solve a Para jumble.
FOR EXAMPLE:
  • The merchant’s son immediately acknowledged Mohan's good work and invited him to his home for dinner.
  • One day a wealthy merchant sent his son's bicycle to the shop for repair.
  • The next day the merchant came to claim the bicycle and noticed that it was shiny.
  • After repairing the bicycle, Mohan cleaned it up and made it look new.
  • Once upon a time, there was a boy named Mohan who worked as an apprentice in a bicycle shop.
  • Other apprentices in the shop laughed at Mohan for doing unnecessary work 


What is the FIRST sentence after rearrangement?
A) 2 
(B) 3 
(C) 4 
(D) 5 
(E) 6
let’s start the elimination method. Let us take 2) Here the starting word is he, so it is referring that the passage has already started. So eliminate sentence 2.By eliminating one by one we have fifth sentence as the answer. Why option D? Since this sentence has the best case for starting a passage.

Rule 6: PRACTICE IS THE KEY

The best way to solve a Para jumble in an exam is to have a deep understanding of the language. Therefore, practice is the key. Practice lots of Para jumbles given in bankexamstoday.

PRACTICE QUESTION 1:

A. Because they aim quickly to acquaint the student with what the contemporary scientific community thinks it knows, textbooks treat the various experiments, concepts, laws and theories of the current normal science as separately and as nearly seriatim as possible.

B. These false analogies render those revolutions invisible; the arrangement of the still visible material in science texts implies a process that, if it existed, would deny revolutions a function.

C. But when combined with the generally unhistorical air of science writing and with the occasional systematic misconstruction, one impression is likely to follow.

D. As pedagogy this technique of presentation is unexceptionable.

E. Science has reached its present state by a series of individual discoveries and inventions that, when gathered together, constitute the modern body of technical knowledge.

B. Then you come across the unpleasant human animal—the District Officer who drawled, “We chaps are here to help you chaps,’ and then proceeded to be as obstructive as possible.

C. In these cases, of course, the fact that you are an animal collector helps; people always seem delighted to meet someone with such an unusual occupation and go out of their way to assist you.

D. Fortunately, these types are rare, and the pleasant ones I have met more than compensated for them—but even so, I think I will stick to animals.
