Default Re: Bank Clerical exam Model Paper

Hello dude as you want the Model Paper for IBPS Bank Clerical exam so here I am providing you the same………

English Language
Directions (Q.115):
Read the following passage to answer the given questions based on it.
Some words/phrases are printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the
questions.
India's manufacturing growth fell to its lowest in more than two years in September 2011,
reinforcing fears that an extended period of high policy rates is hurting growth, according to a
closely vatched index.
The HSBC India Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), based on a survey of over 500 companies,
fell to 50.4 from 52.6 in August and 53.6 in July. It was the lowest since March 2009, when the
reading was below 50, indicating contraction. September's index also recorded the biggest onemonth
fall since November 2008.
The subindex
for new orders, which reflects future output, declined for the sixth successive
month, while export orders fell for a third month on the back of weakness in global economy.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) last week indicated it was not done yet with monetary policy
tightening as inflation was still high. The bank has already raised rates 12 times since March
2010 to tame inflation, which is at a 13month
high of 9.78%.
Economists expect the RBI to raise rates one more time but warn that targeted growth wiII be
hard to achieve if the slump continues. "This (fall in PMI) was driven by weaker orders, with
export orders still contracting due to the weaker global economic conditions," HSBC said in a
press release quoting its chief economist for India & ASEAN.
PMI is considered a fairly good indicator of manufacturing activity the world over, but in the
case of India, the large contribution of the unorganized sector yields a low correlation with
industrial growth.
However, the Index for Industrial Production (IIP) has been showing a weakening trend, having
slipped to a 21month
low of 3.3% in July. The core sector, which consists of eight
infrastructure industries and has a combined weight of 37.9% in the IIP, also grew at only 3.5%
in August.
The PMI data is in line with the suffering manufacturing activity in India as per other estimates.
Producers are seeing that demand conditions are softening and the outlook is uncertain,
therefore they are producing less.
Employment in the manufacturing sector declined for the second consecutive month, indicating
it too was under pressure. This could be attributed to lower requirement of staff and rise in
resignations as higher wage requests go unfulfilled, the HSBC statement said.
On the inflation front, input prices rose at an 11month
low rate, but despite signs of softening,
they still remain at historically high levels.
While decelerating slightly, the readings for input and output prices suggest that inflation
pressures remain firmly in place.
Most economists feel the RBI is close to the end of its rate hike cycle. Even the weekly
Wholesale Price Index (WPI) estimates have started showing signs of softening, having fallen
more than one percentage point.
