New Delhi: Seems Bollywood actresses' popularity has been taken a little too seriously by Kerala Staff Selection Commission.
The Combined Graduate Level Exam conducted by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC), Kerala, asked candidates to name Bollywood's tallest actress and gave a choice of four.
The question on Bollywood was in a multiple choice section between a question on this year's Lok Sabha elections and one on the month in which Valentine's Day is celebrated.
The candidates were asked who was the actress tallest in height.
Here's the question:
"Q: Who among the following actresses is the tallest in height?
"A: (a) Huma Qureshi (b) Katrina Kaif (c) Deepika Padukone (d) Preity Zinta "
The Staff Selection Commission or SSC runs an exam to make appointments in central ministries and other government departments.
Meanwhile, the SSC has apologised for the question paper.
SSC chairman A Bhattacharya said no one at the SSC had set the paper. Local teachers were appointed to set a bank of questions and a panel of experts chose from these to set a final paper.
The SSC has agreed to the demands of the Women's Commission that the two controversial questions not be considered for evaluation.
