ENGLISH QUESTION for SSC CGL Pre 2017 Exam
Hello, Greetings!! Dear Students, At SSC ADDA, we’ve launched our SSC CGL 2017 Campaign. In order to achieve success in the CGL-17 exam, we’ve decided to post ENGLISH QUIZ. Every Day, We’ll post different topics, these quizzes will help you a lot in your complete preparation for the Exam. 

Directions (1-5): You have a brief passage with 5 questions following it. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.

Many of you will go out and try to get the highest paying job possible, regardless of the industry, regardless of the opportunity, regardless of the service, or product the company may provide. If you chase money, it may catch you-and if it catches you, you will forever be its slave. By letting money pursue you but never catch you, you will always be its master. By always doing what you love loving what you do, delivering more than you promise, you will always be underpaid – which is how it should always be. If you are paid more than you are worth, you may be restructured, reengineered, replaced, declared obsolete and disposed of. Overpaid people are overdrawn in their knowledge bank account. People who are underpaid for the level and quality of the service they provide are always in demand and always ahead of the money in their knowledge and contribution. So money and opportunity are always chasing them.
