Tips & Tricks: Para Jumble

# Tips & Tricks: Para Jumble - Tips & Tricks for Government Exams - Bank Exams

## Introduction

• Para Jumbles are jumbled paragraphs. Basically, candidates are given a paragraph and the sentences of that paragraph are not correctly arranged or the sentences are not in the right order. The candidates have to arrange the sentences in a logical and meaningful order such that they make sense and then candidates have to answer the questions accordingly.

### Theory

• Para-Jumble as the name refers to a paragraph wherein the sentences of the paragraph are jumbled and are assigned with some number or letter. So, the question is what should we do in para jumble questions? We are required to arrange the sentences in a proper manner such that they link and form a coherent paragraph, and we must do this rearrangement by choosing the appropriate option from the given option.
• The name of the topic is in a way misleading because we are not jumbling paragraphs here but we are actually straightening out jumbled sentences in a paragraph. This sort of question is quite common in various competitive exams. The right approach to such type of questions can fetch you good marks in competitive exams.

### Tips

• Always read the sentences carefully and try to comprehend the central idea or theme of the paragraph and then try to rearrange the paragraph attentively.
• Candidates need to practice on a daily basis on quizzes and sectional tests to score more and master in para jumbles questions of the reasoning section.
• Try to identify the starting statement and look for the sentences that clearly introduce the person, place, and committee concepts in the para jumble.

### Rules

• Whenever you start doing parajumbles, never look at the options. First try to solve the sentences, then search for the nearest option of your rearranged paragraph. You can use the elimination technique, as you have already arranged the sentence, now you can eliminate the options that do not suit to the required answer and in this way you will get the correct answer.

2. Generalisations come first

• Parajumbles always start with genralised statements and then comes the specifications and options of the topic. Generalisations are always followed by specific reference and examples. You have to read the first statement and last statement, then see what kind of information is given in the sentences. Try to categorised the sentences into information based sentence, reference based and example based sentence and then rearrange them following the above rule.

3. Go from Past To Future

• Analyse the tense of the sentences. Generally, when you get sentences based on data, time period, statistics, then you start the start the paragraph from a past tense then present and at last comes the future tense. this is because, in past tense we give information of previous years and time periods, in present tense we give the present scenario of the situation and in future tense general probabilities are given in the coming time.

• Always keep in mind that a coherent paragraph never starts with words like "this", "that", "those" or any other pronoun. The reason being that if a sentence of paragraph starts from these kind of words, then the meaning becomes ambiguous as the first sentence should always give the proper and exact information and pronouns can be used in other sentences.

5. General to Allusion & Full Form to Abbreviated

• The last but important rule to adhere to while solving parajumbles is that our range starts from general and ends at illusions, similarly we go from full from to abbreviations. If in a sentence, Prime Ministers, Uttar Pradesh are given and in other sentence U.P. and P.M. are given then the sentence containing full forms will come first.
