General knowledge test goes a notch higher at Haryana’s police exam

Name it strange or weird, but the general knowledge – questions asked at Haryana’s police exam held on Sunday, September 26, definitely left the attendees in bewilderment. The exam was conducted for both men and women to fill up 463 positions of sub-inspector in Haryana.

One of the questions asked in the exam paper read “What is special about Home Minister Anil Vij?” and the answer was even weirder. One of the options to answer this question read “unmarried”. Whether or not the correct answer is option C – unmarried for this question will only be known once the answers or results are declared. 

The other options were higher education, first Home Minister and police personnel. Now, Anil Vij was neither police personnel and nor was he the first Home Minister. So, the chances of unmarried as an answer to the question – What is special about Home Minister Anil Vij? – are high.

In the question paper set for men, the other set of questions included “Who was the actress that shared the stage with PM Narendra Modi for Beti Bacho Beti Padhao launch event?” Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, Mallika Sherawat and Madhuri Dixit were the options given to choose the right answer.

Series of strange questions were also listed, in the exam paper, given to women candidates. “Who contested at the Baroda assembly by-elections?” Options were Babita Phogat, Yogeshwar Dutt, Krishna Medha and Captain Abhimanyu. 

“Who is the chairman of Haryana’s Election Commission?” was termed as a wrong question by experts. According to Haryana and Punjab high court advocate Hemant Kumar, there is no “chairman” of the Election Commission, there is a “commissioner”.
