Who is Virat Kohli's girlfriend? Thane school’s exam question has social media stumped

'Who is Virat Kohli's girlfriend?'

No, this is not a tabloid exam but rather a question that school students were supposed to answer.

Hundreds of Class 9 Physical Training (PT) students of a school in Thane were stumped when asked to answer this question in their exam.

The question also came with three helpful options, the names of Bollywood's top 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.

Here's a photo of the exam paper that was making the rounds on social media

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

While speaking to local TV channels, the school principal AR 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.

While many people also questioned the relevance of a cricket-Bollywood star's personal lives in a school exam, most found it to be ridiculously laughable.

Here's what Twitter had to say about it:
