List of Errors: CLAT 2015

There are three actions to be taken to compensate the occurrence of these errors.
A. Those questions where the answer needs to be changed.
B. Question needs to be cancelled

A: Answers needs to changed (12 questions)

Question No. 10

The correct Answer should be option D instead of option C.

Question No. 23

The correct Answer should be option D instead of option A.

Question No. 25

The correct answer is option C instead of option D. The answer is incorrect. The analogy given is
Dulcet: Raucous. The relationship between the two is clearly antonymous in nature. One needed to
go for a pair showing a similar relationship.

Question No. 113

The question and options are confusing. Still the best answer is option A and not C.
It is a well settled legal principle that the burden of proof always rests with the party instituting the
suit unless the contrary is mandated by law. Moreover, given the set of facts that clearly state that
Mr. X was usually of sound mind, which further presses upon the fact that deviation from usual
mental state need be proven by the other party and not Mr. X.
According to the principle, a person cannot enter into a contract if he was of unsound mind at the
time. There is no mention of the concept of burden of proof in the principle. Applying the principle,
A is the correct answer.

Question No. 115

In order to answer this question, the ambit of course of employment need be understood. Here,
course of employment refers only to dropping the customer and coming back. It is true that the
accident has taken place when the driver was coming back, and thus it is within the course of
employment; but dropping Ruhina safely was never within the course of employment and hence the
employer firm is not liable.
"Acting in the course of employment" means the worker acting at his or her employer's direction or in
the furtherance of his or her employer's business. This is the currently accepted legal definition.
Picking up his fiance was not in the course of his employment. If he had gone on a murder spree
while driving back, it would not be considered to be in the course of employment and the company
would not be responsible. Likewise, there is no liability here.
One day, the Manager asked him to drop a customer at the airport and get back at the earliest.
Moreover, there was a clear instruction for a speedy return without any other delays.
Considering these, option B is the most appropriate.

Question No. 116

Answer should be B.
Reason: In this question the shopkeeper was doing legal work and it was a case of necessity. If the
queue gets long, that's not his problem. And it definitely doesn't amount to nuisance.
Essentials Of Public Nuisance :
a. Wrongful Act.
b. Injury or loss caused by such act to another.
c. Unlawful Interference.
In the given facts of question 116 none of the essentials are fulfilled.
In CLAT 2013 same question was given and the answer was B.
The principle clearly states that the interference has to be unlawful, and in the instant case; the
interference is not unlawful because the defendant has committed no wrong. The act alleged of
causing nuisance is that of the customers and cannot be attributed to the shopkeeper.
In this case, the answer (A) does not seem to be correct at all. The answer should be (B) i.e. not
liable. Going by the principle, the defendant can't be made liable for nuisance. There was 'unlawful

Question No. 122

Given principle clearly states that in circumstances when silence is equivalent to speech, there is a
duty to speak. In the given set of facts, A is auctioning the horse and it shall be presumed by all the
bidders that it is of sound mind if nothing at all is spoken in that regard.
The given answer (C) is incorrect. Can recall having read this question elsewhere. There was a duty
upon A to tell B about the unsoundness of the horse. He should be held liable for fraud. Hence (a) is
the correct answer.

Question No. 124

They have considered answer (D) correct whereas the correct option should be (C). In fact, the same
question appears in previous entrance exams of NLSIU (1996) and NALSAR (1998) and the answer has
always been that - one need not consider the delicate nature/special circumstance of a neighbour.
It is a sensible case because no one in the neighbourhood gets disturbed with that sound. Same
question was asked in question of NLS 1996 and the answer was C.

Question No. 182

In this question, in statement B the word wealth is misspelled and should be written as health,
otherwise the question is unsolvable. If we consider the question with wealth treated as health in
statement B, then the correct option should be D instead of A.

Question No. 185

The statement 2 clearly explains that I is a male and he is the brother of B. The mother of I and B
is M, who has a sister Q. So clearly, statement 2 says that I is the nephew of Q. So option 3 should
be the correct answer instead of Answer 4.

Question No. 187

The answer should be option A instead of option C. The second data is not relevant.

B: Question needs to be cancelled

B1: no correct option (6 questions)

Question No. 2

The answer is incorrect. For the second sentence the correct option is censured and not censored.
Critics censure and not censor. No other option is correct.

Question No. 6

None of the options are correct.

Question No. 30

The correct answer has been marked as C. Ideally, the word change should be replaced with
exchange to get the correct answer. Thus there is no correct option.

Question No. 35

The answer for question 35 is definitely wrong. The official answer is option D - discouragement of
exports. This is wrong. Nowhere does the author in the passage talk about the government
discouraging exports. The passage talks about the government discouraging imports. This means
option B should be the correct option: discouragement of imports.

Question No. 37

The passage does not have any reference to "politicians", it has only talked about the "government"
and to extrapolate Government to all politicians will be incorrect. The correct answer should have
been "Indian government has been myopic in its vision of the country's requirement. If this is ignored
and we choose to read Politicians as Policies or treat them equivalent to government, even then
there are two correct options - option 'A' and option 'B'.

Question No. 184

Wrong answer. B cannot be necessarily concluded from A and C. All Infotech employees may not be
knowledge workers.

B: Question needs to be cancelled

B2: answer is debatable (5 questions)

Question No. 56

As per annual revenue, Amazon is a larger e-commerce company; but as per market capital, Alibaba
is a larger e-commerce company. Thus the answer becomes debatable.

Question No. 114

The answer is debatable. The option C can also be an answer, and the option B requires Legal

Question No. 117

There is no mention of the meanings of culpable homicide or murder. In the facts, there is no
mention of unsound mind of the father in the question. Thus, the answer is debatable.
There is no express statement that A is unsound of mind. If his sanity is determined by the fact that
he threw an infant into the well, the facts should have bee clearer. There are records of nine week
old babies learning to swim.

The three-year-old could have been a proficient swimmer. The question is flawed and marks should
be awarded for all candidates.

Question No. 136

This question is highly debatable because it is really difficult to conclude as to whether the act of
running towards the well constitutes attempt or preparation. In my view, it is definitely a stage past
preparation because she has started running towards the well and is also stating that she is going to
jump. Moreover, the explanation is untenable because it is presumed in law that a man is intending
what he/she is consciously saying.

Question No. 137

The answer is highly debatable.

B: Question needs to be cancelled

B3: Question is wrong (14 questions)

Question No. 22

The word but should not have been underlined in the question. Thus, the question is wrong and all
the options are incorrect as a result.

Question No. 161 -168

The data is confusing. This makes answer of 166 and 168 doubtful.

Question No. 169 -173

The question is picked up from CAT 2003 but copied wrongly.

The data given in the table is wrong. For the person I, the numbers of the blanks answers should
be 17, 46, 90 instead of 17, 26, 90. This error must have disturbed many and the set should be
cancelled. It is also affecting the answer of 169 directly.

B: Question needs to be cancelled

B4: Question has misprint (2 questions)

Question No. 186

Two options 3 and 4 are the same.

Question No. 191

The word FASHION is a seven-letter word, but the corresponding code has 6 alpha-numericals.
Thus, the question is unsolvable. Typo error in question z64t7uw is required
