Just last month, the Indian Air Force engineering exam featured a question on actor Deepika Padukone, leaving social media stunned. Now, a Maharashtra school has gone a step further and asked students a rather absurd question about cricketer Virat Kohli.
For their Physical Training or PT exam, class nine students of Chacha Nehru Hindi High School in Bhiwandi had to name the Test captain’s girlfriend, reports Local News Network. The multiple choice question offered students these options to pick from – Priyanka (Chopra), Anushka (Sharma) and Deepika (Padukone). A legitimate ‘question’ for an exam paper, PT-related or otherwise? Quite a stretch.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma started dating in 2013 and have been in an on-again and off-again relationship ever since. Their current relationship status seems to be leaning towards ‘on-again,’ hence the students probably scored a mark for this one.
In September, the Air Force exam paper featured this question on Deepika Padukone and sent Twitter into a tizzy:

Before this, a civil engineering exam question paper featured a question on Tamil blockbuster Baahubali. Students at Vellore Institute of Technology were asked to design engineering set-pieces for the film’s war sequences.
