Out of all, the reasoning section was the easiest one, even though the topics asked in the exam was changing from slot to slot. The only significance the reasoning section had was, no new pattern questions were asked in this particular section. Eve though coding decoding, syllogism , alphanumeric series, MOT were asked, they refrained from going for the new pattern questions, since the question has to be in the easier range. Even the puzzles and Seating arrangement was simple. Only the number series and the alphanumeric series were little tricky but those questions were also easier taking some more time to solve. Directions and Blood Relations constituted the remaining marks in the reasoning section. So this was the scoring part for many of the candidates and we hope many candidates hope to score more in this section and this will save the candidates in the overall cutoff marks of RBI Assistant Preliminary Examination 2017.

The English section had little changes with Reading comprehension and Error Spotting taking the maximum number of questions. The Reading Comprehension was easier with each slot having stories for the reading comprehension. Antonyms and Synonyms questions constituted for 4-5 questions which varied from slots to slots. The Error Detection was the next major one to score. Only basic grammar rules were asked, we repeat basic ones, where the error was very accurate for the candidates to find, difficulty level for these ones can be termed as easy.
