Sentence Rearrangement

Sentence rearrangement is one of those sections that are difficult and time-consuming question asked in Banking exams and other competitive exams. It consists of a group of jumbled sentences that need to be re-assembled to make sense. It sounds easy but it can get tricky when more than one sentence seems to fit perfectly. That is where we have to use vocabulary and context to decide the closest answer. Most banking exams consist of these type of questions and we are here to break it for you:

Approaching Sentence Rearrangement

  1. Check the links: There is always something connecting either in the context or in the flow of the sentence. Usually, it is a particular theme and you can identify.
  2. Related pronouns like who, what, which gives you what goes ahead. You can tell whether this will be followed by a noun or a verb. General knowledge of grammar comes in handy.
  3. Vocabulary: Knowing the meaning of the words definitely leads you to the following words. Even if you don’t know the meaning, break the word down and look at the root word of it to get some context. There is always a hint there.
