SSC CPO Mock Test 1

Q.1 The word given below in capitals has been used in different ways. Choose the option corresponding to the sentence where the word has been used incorrectly.


  1. I can safely assume that he is not clear about the scheme at all.
  2. He decided to withdraw his nomination for class president for no clear reasons.
  3. With all the things going on right now, it is tough to keep a clear head
  4. His boxer’s experience proved to be a clear advantage in the recent bout.
  5. I can’t make it any clearer.

Answer: 2 He decided to withdraw his nomination for class president for no clear reasons.

Solution: The incorrect usage is in choice 2. The correct sentence should be ‘no apparent reasons’ or for obvious reasons.

Q. 2 The following questions have a paragraph that has the last line deleted. From the given options, choose the sentence that completes the paragraph in the correct way.

Russia experienced a burst of growth after the fall of the Soviet Union, based on the increase in oil prices and the benefits of devaluation which the IMF was opposed. But with a dip in oil prices, those benefits no longer are reflected as growth too has been slowed down. Today, the economic prognosis is less bleak than earlier forecasted during the economic crisis of 1998, but there is still uncertainty. The Russian government barely made any economic progress with the oil prices – the country’s main export – were high. Now that the prices have taken a dip, it could mean difficult days ahead________.

  1. Regardless, it seems that Russia has an alternative strategy for its economy in its sleeve
  2. Who should be blamed for this turmoil
  3. The best that can be said at this point is that the future remains cloudy.
  4. The only thing the former superpower can look forward to is an economic disaster of unprecedented proportions.
  5. Ever since the break up of the Soviet Union Russia has faced economics collapse.

Answer: 3 The best that can be said at this point is that the future remains cloudy.

Solution: The correct answer is 3. The focus needs to be on a few points: ‘Growth has slowed’, even economic prognosis ‘is bleak’ and future is ‘uncertain’. The rest of the answers are diverting away from the topic. Thus (c) is an appropriate conclusion.

Q.3 The following paragraph has one italicized word that does not have any meaningful use. Choose the most appropriate alternative for that word from the options given below.

The American writer, Thoreau said, “it takes two to speak the truth -one to speak and another to hear”. This is a very important quote and it would stultify a great deal of argument and irritation in life if people would give it a thought.

  1. Obviate
  2. Avert
  3. Reflect
  4. Divert
  5. Revert

Answer: 1 Obviate

Solution: Option 1 Obviate is the correct answer for the present context as obviate means to avoid something difficult or unpleasant i.e. if one understands what it takes to speak the truth, then he/she can obviate (save) arguments.

Q.4 Fill in the blanks with the correct words chosen from the alternatives given below.

Nature vs nature__________ is inherent in the debate as to whether body language signals and their meanings are culturally determined or whether such cues are innate is false; one does not_______ the other’s influence.

  1. Divaricatore, anticipate
  2. Argument, forestall
  3. Choice, exacerbate
  4. Dichotomy, preclude
  5. Opinion, Disrespect

Answer: 4

Solution: Dichotomy is correct since the sentence says that the divisions into two usually contradictory parts of the opinion are wrong, not that the argument or choice per se is wrong.

Q.5 The word given below in capitals has been used in different ways. Choose the option corresponding to the sentence where the word has been used incorrectly.


  1. Before the protestors could storm in, the police ringed the building.
  2. The ring of the dancer’s footstep excited the audience
  3. His retelling of the incident has a ring of truth to it.
  4. The ring of the machine was very exasperating.
  5. The children formed a ring around the desks.

Answer: 4 The ring of the machine was very exasperating.

Solution: Sentence 4 is incorrect. Since the sound is irritating, it should be the ‘roar’ or the ‘whir’ of the machine.

Q.6 The sentence given in the following question, when properly arranged, form a coherent paragraph. Each sentence is labelled with a letter. Choose the most logical order of sentences that constructs a coherent paragraph among the four choices given below.

  1. From the standpoint of physics, to wait for an event so little is equivalent to waiting for an event that most definitely will not come to pass.
  2. The number of seconds that will pass between the present day and the end of the universe is less than a centillion
  3. The calculation shows that such miracles are more probable than a thing whose chance is one in one centillion
  4. And therefore the time of duration of the universe in its present form must be shorter than the time needed to await a thing that takes place in one centillion second
  5. Physics calls certain such phenomena ‘thermodynamic miracles’ – to these belong, for example, the freezing of water in a pot standing over a flame, rising from the floor of fragments of broken glass and they’re joining together to make a whole glass etc.
  6. The stars will give up all their energy much sooner.

Q.7 Fill in the blanks with the correct words chosen from the alternatives given below.

Dan Murphy, a veteran cartoonist from Canada who works for The Vancouver Province, believes that, to________ the management of Enbridge, a company that contributes significantly to the newspaper’s advertising revenues, the newspaper removed from its website the animated________ he had created of an Enbridge advertisement.

  1. Obsfucate, lampoon
  2. assuage, cartoon
  3. Placate, parody
  4. Perdure, travesty
  5. Perjurify, caricature

Answer: 3 Placate, parody

Solution: Option 3 is correct in this context as ‘placate’ means ‘assuage’, which means ‘make less severe’ is not right here. Parody is correct as it captures the characteristic style of the author.

Q 8. The word given below in capitals has been used in different ways. Choose the option corresponding to the sentence where the word has been used incorrectly.


  1. Bear Isle knows no Queen but the Queen in the South
  2. Go right on 21 Ajanta Nagar and bear left onto JP Nagar
  3. These research articles do not bear on our thesis topic.
  4. She bore up the insult with stoic silence.
  5. Finally Aditya could bear the silence no longer.

Answer: 4 She bore up the insult with stoic silence.

Solution 8: Here the reference is to bear (endure or tolerate). So ‘bear up’ is incorrect. ‘Bear up’ would mean ‘manage’, ‘survive’ or ‘persevere’ and is not appropriate in the given context. The correct sentence is – She bore the insult with stoic silence.

Q.23 The rate of interest on a sum of money is 2% per annum for the first 5 years, 5% per annum for next 1 year and 7% per annum for the last 2 years. If the simple interest on the sum for a total period of 8 years is Rs. 500, then the sum is

  1. 933.6
  2. 1453.6
  3. 866.7
  4. 1724.13
  5. 652.2

Answer: 4

Solution 23: Let, the principle be Rs. y

According to the question,

[{y (2 x 5)} / 100] + [{y (5 x 1)} / 100] + [{y (7 x 2)} / 100] = 500

⇐ (10y / 100) + (5y / 100) + (14y / 100) = 500

⇐ 29y / 100 = 500

⇐ y = (500 / 29) x 100

⇐ y = Rs. 1724.13

Q.24 A certain amount of money is divided between Charan, Abirami and Amritha in the ratio 6: 9 : 13. If the difference between the shares of Abirami and Amritha is Rs. 10800, what will be the difference between the shares of Charan and Abirami?

  1. Rs. 8600
  2. Rs. 7350
  3. Rs. 8100
  4. Rs. 9000
  5. Rs. 7500

Answer: 2

Solution 24: Let the shares of Charan, Abirami and Amritha be 6x, 9x and 13x respectively.

According to the question, 13x – 9x = 10800

4x = 10800

x = 10800 / 4

x = 2700

Therefore, the difference in the shares of Charan and Abirami = 9x – 6x = (9 X 2700) – (6 X 2700)

= Rs. 8100

Q. 25 A bag contains 2 brown, 6 red and 7 black marbles. Four marbles are drawn out randomly. Find the probability that none of the marbles drawn is black.

  1. 19 / 7
  2. 39 / 2
  3. 35 / 9
  4. 25 / 3
  5. 12 / 7

Answer: 2

Solution 25:

Total number of cases = 15C4 = (15 x 14 x 13 x 12) / (4 x 3 x 2 x 1) = 1365

Number of favourable cases = 8C4 = (8 x 7 x 6 x 5) / (4 x 3 x 2 x 1) = 70. Therefore, required probability = 8C4 / 15C4 = 1365 / 70 = 39 / 2
