LESSON 1:

"Benefit" stands for something good.everyone one us know this lets learn words that has the same root as benefit & give very similar meanings

so

1.Bene-good

Benefactor-A person who does something good to people or an individual or a person who is the reason for a good to happen is a benefactor.

Beneficiary-A person who gets benefited by a good thing is termed as a beneficiary.

Benefaction-Process of doing something good to someone is termed as Benefaction.

Benediction-Speaking something good or blessing is termed as Benediction.

Benevolent-having a good heart or having the heart to serve people is termed as benevolent.

Benefice-An appointment at church for  doing good things and income from it is termed as benefice.

2.Male-Bad 

For example we have words like malfunction,malnutrition & malpractice.All of these words give the meaning bad.So with that we can learn words like

Malefactor-A person who does something bad to people or an individual or a person who is the reason for a bad to happen is a malefactor.

Maleficiary-A person who suffers a harm is termed as a maleficiary.

Malefaction-Process of doing something bad to someone is termed as malefaction.

Malediction-Speaking something bad or curse is termed as malediction.

Malevolent-having a bad heart or a person know from his ill activities is termed as malevolent.

malefice-A person known to do evil or bad things is termed as malefice.An evil sorcery.

 

Forget the pain of remembering vocabulary.

Make vocabulary learning fun & easy.

Thank you.

INTRODUCTION
    


Questions on series are now extremely common in all the Prelims and Mains exams. They are generally of three types – number, letter and alphanumeric – but the most commonly asked questions are on number series.


NUMBER SERIES
    


You are given a sequence of numbers that follow a common pattern. You need to understand this pattern and either identify the next term (more common) or find a missing term. There are infinite number of ways to create a number series by using one or more patterns. However, with practice you can start identifying the more common patterns such as difference, product, ratio, squares, cubes, powers factorials etc. Some basic series are:


Even Numbers: 2, 4, 6, 8…

Odd Numbers: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 …

Prime Numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17 …

Composite Numbers: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15 …

Squares: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, ….

Cubes: 1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, …

Factorials: 1, 2, 6, 24, 120, 720, ….


Note that ‘1’ is neither prime nor composite. Depending on the numbers used, a series can be increasing, decreasing or alternate. The common patterns used to create number series are:


DIFFERENCE BASED
    


This is the most basic and common form of series. If possible, this is the first thing you should check when you try to find a pattern in the series. You should take the difference between consecutive terms of a series. This difference can be constant (e.g. +5, −3 etc) or have some pattern of its own. This can be one of the patterns explained above e.g. if the series is: 32 33 41 68 132, take the difference to get 1 8 27 64. Since these numbers are clearly a series of perfect cubes, the next number in this sequence is 125. Hence, the next number in the original series is 132 + 125 = 257. Occasionally, you might not get a pattern after a first level of difference. Ten, you should take a difference of these differences and check.

 

Directions for examples 1 to 5: Find the missing term to complete the given series.


Example 1:

58, 70, 84, 100, ___


(1) 112(2) 119(3) 116(4) 118(5) 122


Solution:

Consider the difference between consecutive terms: 12, 14, 16, …

Observe that the difference is a series of consecutive even numbers.

Hence, next difference = 18 and next number = 100 + 18 = 118

Hence, option 4.


Example 2:

    

3, 9, 18, 30, ___


(1) 33(2) 36(3) 45(4) 39(5) 42


Solution:

This is an example of multiple patterns applying to the same set of numbers. In each case, the answer turns out to be the same.


Logic 1: Take the difference of consecutive terms i.e. 6, 9, 12, ….

The difference is a series of consecutive multiples of 3.

Hence, next difference = 15 and next term = 30 + 15 = 45

Hence, option 3.


Logic 2: Each term can be written as:

3 = 3 × 1; 9 = 3 × 3; 18 = 3 × 6; 30 = 3 × 10

Observe that the multiples of 3 in the above series themselves form a series 1, 3, 6, 10. The difference between consecutive terms of this new series is 2, 3, 4 and so on.

 

 

Hence, the next difference should be 10 + 5 = 15. Thus, the required multiple of 3 is 15.

Required term = 3 × 15 = 45

Hence, option 3.


Logic 3:

3 = 3 × 1

9 = 3 + 3 × 2

18 = 9 + 3 × 3

30 = 18 + 3 × 4

The pattern is (Previous term) + (3 × Position of term in the sequence)

Therefore, the next term should be 30 + 3 × 5 = 45

Hence, option 3.


Note:

Though the answer can be obtained through various patterns, you should always select the pattern that you first think of in the exam. Sometimes, the different patterns possible give different answers. In that case, you should look at the options and select the pattern whose answer is given in the options.


Example 3:

    

336, 305, 268, 227, 184, ___


(1) 137 (2) 163(3) 146(4) 133 (5) 129


Solution:

Consider the difference between consecutive terms: −31, −37, −41, −43.

If you ignore the minus sign, the differences form a series of consecutive primes.

Since the next prime is 47, the required difference = −47.

Hence, required term = 184 – 47 = 137

Hence, option 1.

 


Example 4:

    


1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, ___


(1) 9(2) 10(3) 12(4) 13(5) 15


Solution:

Observe that, starting from the third term, each term is the sum of the 2 terms immediately preceding it.

Hence, the required term = 5 + 8 = 13.

Hence, option 4.

 

Note:
The series given in this example is a special series known as the Fibonacci Series in which the sum of two successive terms is the next term.

 

PRODUCT BASED
    


Just like difference based series, product based series either have a common ratio between terms or the ratio also shows some pattern. Common patterns are powers, factorials and multiples. A common feature of such series is that the value of consecutive terms increases/decreases quite sharply. However, first level subtraction often helps in identifying the underlying pattern.


PRODUCT

The series may be based on simple application of factors or multiples.


Example 6:

    

Find the missing term. 2, 12, 30, 56, ___


(1) 77(2) 90(3) 79(4) 72(5) 92


Solution:

Each number can be expressed as a product of consecutive numbers:

1 × 2 = 2; 3 × 4 = 12; 5 × 6 = 30; 7 × 8 = 56

Hence, required term = 9 × 10 = 90

Hence, option 2.


Alternatively,

Consider the difference between consecutive terms: 10, 18, 26.

These differences form a series increasing by 8. Hence, next difference =

26 + 8 = 34.

Hence, the required term = 56 + 34 = 90.

Hence, option 2.


Example 7:

    

Find the missing term. 24, 12, 12, 18, 36, ___


(1) 90(2) 92(3) 78(4) 67(5) 77


Solution:

Consider the ratio between consecutive terms: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.

Since the ratio keeps increasing by 0.5, the next ratio is 2.5.

Hence, required term = 36 × 2.5 = 90

Hence, option 1.


POWER

These include questions where the pattern is related to squares, cubes or higher powers. Here, the value of the term increases even more sharply.


Example 8:

    

Find the missing term. 2, 6, 30, 260, ___


(1) 420(2) 500(3) 3140(4) 610(5) 3130


Solution:

The sharp increase in value indicates that the pattern may be based on powers.

The given series can be expressed as (11 + 1), (22 + 2), (33 + 3), (44 + 4)


Therefore, the required term = 55 + 5 = 3130

Hence, option 5.


Example 9:

    

Find the missing term. 11, 24, 39, 416, ___


(1) 626(2) 525(3) 552(4) 523(5) 5025


Solution:

Here, the numbers do not show an obvious pattern either using differences or simple products. If we split each number in 2 parts, we see that one part is the square of the other part.

Each term is of the form nn2.


Hence, the 5th term should be 552 i.e. 525.

Hence, option 2.


FACTORIAL

This involves the fastest growth in values since the factorials of the first 7 natural numbers are 1, 2, 6, 24, 120, 720 and 5040.


Example 10:

    

Find the missing term. 1, 1, 4, 36, ___


(1) 36(2) 51(3) 576(4) 81(5) 225


Solution:

The pattern seen in the above series is (n!)2.

Each term can be expressed as: (0!)2, (1!)2, (2!)2, (3!)2 and so on.

Therefore the required term should be (4!)2 = (24)2 = 576.

Hence, option 3.


Consider ratio between consecutive terms: 1, 4, 9. These are squares of consecutive natural numbers.
Hence, next ratio = 16 and required term = 36 × 16 = 576

Hence, option 3.


ALTERNATING SERIES
    


An alternating series is a combination of two or more series. Each series can have different patterns applied to it and then combined to form a series. In a combination of 2 series, alternate terms follow the same pattern. An alternating series can be a combination of more than 2 series as well. If you are asked to find two or more values, it is very likely to be an alternating series.


Example 11:

    

Find the missing term. 0, 3, 3, 4, 6, 5, 9, 6, ___


(1) 9(2) 5(3) 4(4) 10(5) 12


Solution:

Since the values increase and decrease, you should check for alternate series.

Taking alternate terms together, we get (0, 3, 6, 9, ?) and (3, 4, 5, 6). One is a series of consecutive multiples of 3 while the other is a series of consecutive integers.

Hence, the required number is the next multiple of 3 i.e. 12.

Hence, option 5.


Example 12:

    

Find the missing term. 1, 2, 7, 12, 21, 70, 43, _____


(1) 124(2) 224(3) 184(4) 150(5) 212


Solution:

Since the values increase and decrease, you should check for alternate series.

Taking alternate terms together, we get (1, 7, 21, 43) and (2, 12, 70, ?).

The first series is of the form [n + (n – 1)2]; where n is the series of consecutive odd numbers starting from 1.

The second series is of the form [n + (n – 2)3]; where n is the series of even numbers starting from 2.

The required number is part of the second series.

Hence, required number = 8 + (8 – 2)3 = 8 + 63 = 8 + 216 = 224

Hence, option 2.


MISCELLANEOUS
    


These can involve a combination of patterns or series and cannot be directly classified.


Example 13:

    

Find the missing term. 10, 103, 18, 187, ___


(1) 979(2) 26(3) 9(4) 251(5) 34


Solution:

The difference of consecutive terms does not form a logical series.

Here, look at the actual digits of each term. The sum of digits of each term is:

10: 1 + 0 = 1

103: 1 + 0 + 3 = 4

18: 1 + 8 = 9

187: 1 + 8 + 7 = 16

Thus, the sum of digits for each term is the square of consecutive natural numbers.

Hence, the next term should have sum of digits = 52 = 25.

Only 979 satisfies this condition.

Hence, option 1.


Example 14:

    

Find the missing term. 0, 1, 0, 8, 2, 7, 6, ___


(1) 2(2) 3(3) 4(4) 5(5) 8


Solution:

It is a series of cubes of natural numbers but each digit of the number is written as a separate term. Here, each cube has been expressed as a two digit number split into two parts i.e. 1 as 01, 8 as 08 and so on.

The next cube is 43 = 64. Since ‘6’ is already present, the next term = 4.

Hence, option 3.

 

 

 

Tips: 

  • For solving problems on numbers series, first observe the difference between the numbers. The difference may be constant or may form a pattern.
  • If the first level of subtraction does not show a pattern, subtract the differences from each other again. This may show a pattern. Continue till a consistent pattern is found.
  • If the difference between consecutive terms is very large and there is no constant pattern in the difference, it may be a product series. In a product series, the terms increase/decrease at a greater rate compared to a difference based series. Multiplicative series are generally based on pure multiplication, powers or factorials.
  • First check if the terms show some relationship with the multiple or factor of some number or group of numbers (such as even multiples of prime numbers).
  • If no factor/multiple based relationship is found, check if the numbers lie close to squares or cubes or higher powers of any number.
  • Remember the factorials of the first 7-8 numbers and see if the terms lie close to the factorials.
  • If the terms increase and decrease alternately, it may be an alternate series with two different patterns. If a question has more than 1 blank, in most cases it implies a combination of 2 or more series. If nothing works out, check the relationship between the digits of the terms, especially if some terms are very small in value and some are very large or if the terms seem to be random.
  • If the middle term is missing, check the pattern between the 1st and 2nd term, as well as the 4th and 5th term to see if there is an alternating pattern. Then use the answer option to see which alternative suits the best.
  • In letter series, always write down the position of the letters in the alphabet and then find the relationship.
  • In alphanumeric as well as letter series, focus on one element at a time e.g. first letter, first number. Based on its pattern, you may be able to eliminate some options.
  • If you are unable to get the pattern for a series based question in approximately one minute, leave it for the time being. Do not spend too much time on it.
  • If two patterns are visible for a given series, check if the answer by both is the same or different. If it is different, check which answer is given in the options. If very rare cases where both are given, you can either of the two as the answer.

  • Replacement case:

Weight of new person =  Weight of outgoing person  + No of person (inc in average)

Weight of new person = Weight of outgoing person  -  No of person (dec in average)

  • Non replacement case:

Teacher age = Existing average + Total no of new persons (inc in average)

Teacher age = Existing average - Total no of new persons (dec in average)

  • Diff of first & last no = Difference in Average * (Total no of sample-1)
  • Correct average = Existing average ± (Diff in value/Total no of observation)
  • If average of some numbers is “x” and a constant number is added to each term of the series, then new average is = x+a. Similarly calculate you can find new average when subtraction, multiplication and division to each term of the series is given.

14 Methods for Improving Your Spoken English

The Mindmasters

1. Think in English - Sometimes the difficult thing about talking in a new language isn’t the language itself, but how you think about it. If you think in your native language and then try to speak English, you’ll always have to translate between languages. Translating isn’t an easy thing to do! Even people fluent in two or more languages have trouble switching between languages.

The solution is to think in English.

You can do this anywhere, anytime. Try to use English when you’re thinking about your day, or when you’re trying to decide what food to order. Even try to use an English to English dictionary to look up words. That way you never have to use your native language and translate words. You’ll notice that when you think in English, it’s easier for you to speak in English.

2. Talk to yourself - Whenever you’re at home (or alone somewhere else) you can practice your English with your favorite person: yourself.

If you’re already thinking in English, try speaking your thoughts out loud. Read out loud, too. Practice is practice, and even if you don’t have anyone to correct your mistakes, just the act of speaking out loud will help you become more comfortable speaking English.

3. Use a mirror - Whenever you can, take a few minutes out of your day to stand in front of the mirror and speak. Choose a topic, set a timer for 2 or 3 minutes and just talk.

The point of this exercise is to watch your mouth, face and body language as you speak. It also makes you feel like you’re talking to someone, so you can pretend you’re having a discussion with a study buddy. Talk for the full 2 or 3 minutes. Don’t stop! If you get stuck on a word you don’t know, try expressing your idea in a different way. You can always look up how to say that word after the 2-3 minutes end. This will definitely help you find out what kinds of words or sentences you have trouble with.

4. Focus on fluency, not grammar - When you speak in English, how often do you stop? The more you stop, the less confident you sound and the less comfortable you become. Try the mirror exercise above, but challenge yourself to speak without stopping or stammering (taking pauses between your words) the entire time.

This might mean that your sentences won’t be grammatically perfect, and that’s okay! If you focus on speaking fluently instead of correctly, you’ll still be understood and you’ll sound better. You can fill in the correct grammar and word rules as you learn them better.

5. Try some tongue twisters - Tongue twisters are series of words that are difficult to say quickly. One example is: “The thirty-three thieves thought that they thrilled the throne throughout Thursday.” Try saying this a few times! It’s not easy.

Word games like this will help you find the right placement for your mouth and tongue, and can even help your pronunciation. You can find a list of great tongue twisters here.

6. Listen and repeat - Do you watch TV shows or YouTube videos in English? Use them to improve your fluency. Choose a short part of a show and repeat it line by line. Try to match the tone, speed and even the accent (if you can). It doesn’t matter if you miss a few words, the important thing is to keep talking. Try to sound just like the native speakers on the show.

7. Pay attention to stressed sounds - English uses stresses in words and sentences. That means you’ll need to stress, or emphasize, certain words and syllables (sounds) to give words and sentences different meanings.

Listen to where native speakers place the emphasis when they speak. Try to repeat it the same way. This won’t only help you speak well, it might even reduce misunderstandings. Sometimes the placing the stress on the wrong syllable completely changes the word. The word address, for instance, isn’t the same as the word address. address refers to a physical location where someone lives, and address means to formally speak to a group of people.

Learn to hear the difference!

8. Sing along to English songs - Singing along to your favorite English songs will help you become more fluent. Once you can sing along to Taylor Swift and Jason Mraz, you can test your skills with something a bit more difficult: rap!

Rap is a great way to practice English because often the words are spoken like regular sentences. However, the rapper uses a stronger rhythm and faster speed. Some of the words might not make sense, but if you can keep up with the rapper then you’re on your way to becoming fluent!

9. Learn word forms with new words - Some practice comes before you even open your mouth. Make speaking easier by learning the different forms of any words you learn. You should do this when you’re learning new vocabulary. For example, if you just learned the word write, you should also learn some other forms like wrote and written.

Knowing the correct way to use a word in any kind of sentence is important. This knowledge will help you while speaking. You won’t have to stop and think of different words—you’ll know exactly when you need to use that word while speaking.

10. Learn phrases, not words - An even better idea is to learn word phrases, not just words. You might be using correct grammar and vocabulary, but it’s still not how a native speaker would say it.

 For example, you can say “how do you feel today?” but a native speaker might say “how’re you doing?” or “what’s up?” instead. Phrases and expressions can be helpful for sounding more natural when you speak.

11. Learn your most common sayings - Take some time to really notice how you speak in your native language. What words and phrases do you use the most often?

Learn how to say your most commonly used phrases and words in English. Knowing them in English will help you speak as well in English as you do in your native language.

12. Prepare for specific situations - Are you learning English for a specific reason? For example, are you learning English so you can get a job in an English-speaking company? In that case, practice English that will help you in an interview. Are you learning English so you can make friends in America? Then you would need a different kind of English.

Before you go to a place where you have to speak English, you can practice what you might have to say. If you’re preparing to go to a restaurant, what might conversations in a restaurant sound like? Answer the questions a waiter might ask you. Try talking about food and menus.

You’ll feel more confident if you’re prepared!

13. Relax! - You can be your best helper or your worst enemy when learning to speak fluently! We know it’s hard, but you should try not to worry about how you sound when you speak. Just relax!

If you get stuck or confused, just take a big breath and start over. Speak slower if you have to. Take time to pause and think about your next sentence. Do whatever it takes to become more comfortable with speaking English.

14. Tell a story from your language in English - Here’s a fun way to test how well your spoken English has developed: choose a story that you know really well and tell it in English.

Remember to think in English as you’re telling your story. Focus on speaking fluently instead of correctly. Say every sentence out loud to yourself.

Even if you have nobody to talk to in English, you can still build confidence and master fluency on your own time. In some ways, practicing speaking is even easier by yourself.

Research the company beforehand:

Before attending an interview, you must always do some research about your prospective employer and the job role for which you are being interviewed.
By doing this, you will be able to answer well when interviewers ask you questions like: 'What do you know about our company?' 'What are our products?' 'Who are our competitors?' etc.

Arrive early at the venue:

Being punctual is something you should practise in everyday life as it will help you always. You must always arrive fifteen minutes early at the interview venue. It helps you settle down and relax.

Be neatly groomed and dress formally:

You must always maintain personal hygiene. Use a mild deodorant or perfume. Ensure that your mouth doesn't smell. Neatly comb your hair. Men must always shave before attending an interview. The first impression is the best impression. Therefore, you must dress right for an interview. It gives the interviewer an idea of how serious you are about getting the job as well as your dressing sense.

Don't wear jazzy or bright coloured clothes. Opt for subtle and earthy colours as they are pleasing to the eye. It is not essential for women to wear 'western' clothes. Women can wear a sari or salwar kameez.

Be confident:

When you are called inside the interview room, walk straight, with a slight smile on your face. Greet the interviewer by giving a firm handshake. Look into the eyes of the interviewer and respond to questions asked, as it will make them feel that you are confident about yourself and your answers.

Maintain a composed body posture:

Your body posture can speak volumes. It is very important to maintain the right body posture. Sit straight, leaning slightly forward. Do not lean backward or bend too much forward. Do not play with the pen or your hair. Do not come to the interview with a chewing gum in your mouth.

Answer to the point:

Don't exaggerate.

Listen carefully.

To answer correctly, you must first listen to what is being asked.

If you are not clear about the question, ask the interviewer to repeat the question.

Say, 'I don't know', if you don't know the answer:

If you are asked a tricky question, and you do not know or are not confident about your answer, then say, 'I am sorry, sir, but I do not know the answer to this question. The interviewers are fine if you don't know the answer, but would not like to listen to any faulty or wrong answers. If you do not know the answer, it is a good idea to tell the interviewer that you can find out the answer. Ask where can you research, who can you ask, etc. to find the answer. This is reassuring to the interviewer.

Conclude the interview on a positive note:

Thank the interviewer for his/her time.
Ask them any further information that you need to know about the company, like their work culture, on-boarding process, etc.

To be the big fish in a small pond or the small fish in a big pond?

As you stand at the head start of your career track it is but natural to have a million questions in your head about where to start from. Each and every one of us wants to get that jump start which will put us ahead of the competition. Usually, these are the few must haves(Personal Checklist) that we know we deserve on our first job:-

  1. High Package (everyone wants to bag the highest package amongst his or her peers)
  2. Brand Name (again, everyone wants to work for the big names in the industry. Ever heard anyone saying, “I want to work for a start-up?”)
  3. Metropolitan City (All of us want to go in for Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, and Bangalore, isn’t it?)

Some of you must have thought in your head, “What about Job Profile”. I did not mention it intentionally because when you give priority to the above three you completely lose out on the relevance of the most important factor that is the job profile.

Let us take the example of two MBA graduates (let us name them A and B) from a 2 tier college. Both of them have pursued Marketing. As luck and their hard work would favor they both landed in jobs which fulfilled their criteria’s. A got a marketing job with a big brand in Mumbai and has landed up with the highest package in his college. B, on the other hand, got a sales job role at a much lower package with a relatively smaller company. Both are happy as A got the cutting edge over his peers with this placements while B got into a sales role and profile that he was offered was something he looked forward to ( B was passionate about sales as a profession).

After 3 years A and B met at a college get together. Time had changed a lot of things. A asked B how his job was going? To which B told him that how his hard work got him 2 promotions and the innumerable opportunities that he received to travel and all that he is learned over a period of 3 years. He told A how he had the freedom to think out of the box and how this made him feel more responsible towards his company. When B asked A about his job, he said that he was looking for a change however he was not getting many opportunities. Wherever he went the company felt that for 3 years and an MBA degree he had not gained much experience and despite his hard work in these three years he was still awaiting his promotion and a decent salary hike as the hr. processes were too streamlined.

Looking at both the situations whom do you think is happier and satisfied with his job? For sure B. What I am trying to convey is that when age is on our side and when we have so many options in front of us we must focus on what is the type of job/ job profile that will please us. Only if you are happy in the type of job that you do will you be able to sustain the hardships and taste the success? There is enough time to mint money but this stage in your life will never come back when you can follow your heart and do the kind of job that you like.

You must remember is "YOU" should be like the highly absorbing sponge, absorb as much as you can at work. Look for a job that will give you a plethora of opportunities to learn from. Don’t run after money let money run after you. If you genuinely love the work that you are doing then the sky is the limit.

Hi Pragati, Having such a good experience of years in HR/ Marketing you would first need to decide what would you like to do from home. I would suggest working as an HR would be easier. You need to float up a proprietary concern, using your contacts and good offices that you have shared with companies over the years ask them to register you as a recruiter with their company. You can search candidates though various job portals and recruit them.. if you have any queries please feel free to ask. read less
