Re: Union Bank of India probationary officers exam last year question papers

As you want to get the Union Bank of India probationary officers exam last year question papers so here it is for you:

Directions—(Q. 1–15) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the
questions.
Over the past few decades, many Asian nations transformed from poverty into global competitors.
From 2003 to 2007, Asian economies expanded at an average annual rate of 8•1%, triple that of
advanced economies. Over the same period, inflation in Asia averaged only about 3•5%. But Asia
could be facing turbulent economic times. In May, the average inflation rate throughout the region
reached nearly 7%, led by spikes in oil and food prices. In India, inflation jumped to an 11•6% annual
rate in June, according to the latest government figures, the highest in 13 years.
Policymakers and central bankers are forced to raise interest rates and limit credit to get inflation under
control. But these same measures suppress the investment and consumption that generates growth. The
combination of slowing growth and soaring inflation makes economic policy-making tricky. Inflation
stirs up the middle classes because it can quickly erase years of hardwon personal gains. Inflation is
cruel to the poor, because families have to spend a larger share of their meagre incomes on necessities.
In the Philippines, farmers, unable to afford fuel for tractors, use water buffaloes to plough their fields.
But to avoid unrest, leaders cannot blindly adopt rigid anti-inflation measures. Voters won’t hesitate to
remove from office any politician who doesn’t deliver the goods. So they cannot overreact to the
inflation threat and scale down economic growth in the process. Developing nations need to grow
quickly to create jobs and increase incomes for their large populations. With prices soaring, doing
nothing is not an option. Most central banks in Asia have started raising interest rates. The Reserve
Bank of India increased its benchmark rate twice last month to a six year high of 8•5%.
The challenge is especially difficult because currently, inflation is not of domestic origin. Prices are
being driven higher by a global surge in oil and food prices, which individual governments can do little
to control. Of course, inflation is not just a problem in Asia. World Bank President Robert Zoellick
called rising food and oil prices a man-made ‘catastrophe’ that could quickly reverse the gains made in
overcoming poverty over the past seven years. For now, though, there is more talk than action on the
international front, so Asian governments are on their own.
Even though inflation throughout the region is likely to continue to rise in coming months, no one is
expecting an economic calamity. According to the Asian Development Bank Asian countries have large
hard currency reserves and relatively healthy banks, and so are far better prepared to absorb external
shocks than they were during the region’s last recession ten years ago. Asian policymakers have learned
their lessons and are more alert.
