Current Affairs Questions for IBPS Clerk Mains 2017: 19th Jan 2018

Dear Aspirants,


Current Affairs Quiz Based on The Hindu: 19th Jan

The General Awareness Section of Banking Exams covers numerous sections in it like Banking Awareness, Static GK, and Current Affairs. But the most important thing that you might have noticed is that both the Banking Awareness and Static Awareness questions asked in the General Awareness Section are based on Current Affairs only. The questions on Static and Banking Awareness are related to the countries, events or anything that has been in news for a while. Apart from the GA Section, an excellent knowledge of current news also helps you deal with the PI (Personal Interview) more efficiently so you do not give a mumble jumble answer to the interviewee’s simple questions. Here is a quiz on Current Affairs to let you assess your Current Affairs Knowledge.
