English Section was a sight of relief in SBI PO Prelims 2017.  Students were relieved to see that 10 Ka Dum continued in this exam as well. You just need to pick the right topic for yourself and you can easily score good marks. We are sure that students can score nice marks if they have even read the RC and they can easily score well in cloze test. Cloze test was with a little twist where they gave a word in front of the blank and asked if the given word is appropriate then select option (e) otherwise select the appropriate from the rest of 4 options. There was one new topic of Phrase Replacement which was not so difficult. There were 3-4 vocab questions in Reading Comprehension.
