Cloze test 1 - General English IBPS PO and Clerk exams

Hello friends,

In the previous post, we did Data Interpretation under Quantitative Aptitude.

Now, let's do a Cloze Test under General English section.

Let's start.....

The below paragraph is taken from The Hindu Daily

Cloze test for IBPS PO and Clerk exams

The long, anxious, and frustrating wait by people outside banks and ATMs across the country over the last five days is an ___1___ consequence of the decision to demonetise notes of Rs.500 and Rs.1,000. When 86 per cent of the value of notes in circulation turns suddenly invalid, as it did with Prime Minister Modi’s ‘surgical strike’ last week, a certain degree of ___2___ and pain is unavoidable. But the question is whether this ___3___ could have been ___4___ and managed better than it has been. Replacement of the demonetised notes is a time-consuming exercise that requires planning of the highest order. The experience of the last few days shows that preparation was lacking and the ___5___ could have been handled much better. ATMs are running out of cash quickly while banks are ___6___ more of the Rs.2,000 notes than those of lower denominations. What use is a high-value note if there is not enough smaller currency to make an exchange? Of course, it was never an easy task for the Reserve Bank of India and the Centre to strike the right balance between secrecy and storing adequate quantity of notes for quick distribution.
