There’s a popular adage, ** ‘It’s hard to beat a person who works hard’. **We must learn to focus our energy in the direction of our strengths and simultaneously try to work on our weaknesses. It is not impossible to attempt questions in lesser amount of time than we take now. The first thing is to believe that we can. And then working for it. We with these Banking Shots of all the three sections are trying to add to your preparations by providing the exact simulation of the type of puzzles and questions that are directly given in the exams. In this shot we bring to you 10 questions which must ideally be finished in about 6 minutes. What are you waiting for! Hit the timer and start!!

Good Luck! Happy Puzzling 🙂
