Match the Column

Match the column in banking exams are pretty common. The best practice is to go through both the columns before jumping into the exercises. Connect with context if you don’t know by meaning, eliminate the ones that cannot be matched, look at them at the end. Chances are all that make sense have been matched up leaving you the ones that you could not match and that’s a small pot to choose from now.
