“Who won the Oscar Award for best actor in a lead female role in the year 2015?”

This was one of the questions in the Delhi Higher Judicial Examination-2015 that now stands deleted after the Delhi High Court found that, subject to interpretation, none of the options given as answers were correct.

A Bench of Justices Pradeep Nandrajog and Pratibha Rani was deciding petitions “attacking” answers to eight of the 125 questions in the DJS examination- 2015.

On December 18, 2015, the high court had invited applications from eligible candidates for nine vacancies in the Delhi Higher Judicial Services. The preliminary examination was conducted on April 3, 2016.

On April 8, the Delhi High Court had put on its website the model answer keys while inviting objections, if any, to its answers. All objections to the model answers were rejected and the result was declared on August 26. Thereafter, petitions came up before the the high court challenging model answers to 18 questions, of which eight were finally pressed. Two of these were held incorrect while two were directed to be deleted by the Division Bench.
