'Name Virat Kohli's girlfriend' - Thane school exam question!

IANS  |  Thane 

Hundreds of Class 9 Physical Training (PT) students of a local school were stumped when asked to answer an exam question on: 'Who is Virat Kohli's girlfriend?'.

The question also came with three helpful options, the names of film actresses: Priyanka (Chopra), Anushka (Sharma) or Deepika (Padukone).

A leaked copy of the question paper of Chacha Nehru Hindi High School, Bhiwandi town, went viral on social media, with many questioning the relevance of a cricket-Bollywood star's personal lives in a school exam.

The annual exam was conducted on October 13 by the school and the question figured in the objective section, as Q.No. 1(B).

Despite repeated attempts, the school authorities were not available for their comments in the matter.

However, while speaking to local TV channels, the school principal A. R. Pandey has passed the responsibility for the goof-up on the PT teacher, who allegedly set the exam paper.

The principal admitted that the blunder went 'unnoticed' but has not specified any remedial measures for the same.

Parents are now worried whether those students who attempted it and got the answer wrong would be compensated or not, since the question was out of the study syllabus.
