CLAT Questions

English Language 

The summer he turned 82, my father lost his stories. He was still vibrant, garrulous and energetic, and initially none of us noticed that his anecdotes were getting repetitive, that he was forgetting names and places, that he was confusing times and references. A man of many narratives, we listened to his oft-repeated tales, sometimes with feigned patience and sometimes with visible impatience. 

 

Till the day the stories stopped. The words dried out. The memories disappeared. The change happened so gradually that its final suddenness took us, his immediate family by complete surprise. And when the stories dried up, the energy seemed to drain away from his soul. This loss of energy was immediately and visibly apparent as this was one trait, above all others that characterized my father. 

A child of Partition, Baba had left his native Barisal in present-day Bangladesh, on the eve of this momentous event in 1947, at the age of 14. My grandmother, widowed since the birth of my father, her youngest son, decided to leave their sprawling homestead with extensive farming lands and immigrate to the yet-to be formed republic of India, along with her four other sons. Thus, family lore tells us, she liquidated some of her assets, packed her immediate family and necessary belongings onto a steamer and sailed into the teeming, seething city of Calcutta to set up a new life. 

A seminal rupture in the subcontinent, Partition had wreaked havoc among countless families, uprooted and flung far and wide without any recourse. Baba often became that recourse – his contribution making a significant difference to families struggling to survive with some degree of dignity. It seemed his experience of early loss and deprivation had in a strangely converse way, endowed him with a generosity of soul that I have yet to encounter in another person. 

It was thus shocking to see this extraordinary man with the mind, heart and soul of a Colossus shorn of his spirit. 

In an effort to revive his flagging interest, I urged him to start writing down stories from his life. I bought him a notebook and with great flourish announced his assignment. 

Stories were my particular stock in trade. I’d nurtured an early passion for storytelling and story writing into a teaching career focused on literacy. I used specific strategies to build a writing habit in my students, centered on the belief that we all have stories to tell. As the children became confident and joyful storytellers, their acquisition of benchmarked literacy skills outstripped that of their peers. 

Could I use these same strategies to draw the forgotten stories from Baba? Would these forgotten stories in turn help him reconstruct a sense of self? 

[Extracted, with edits and revisions, from: “Her father’s memories were slipping away. She made him tell stories so that he could hold on to them”, by Ranu Bhattacharyya, Scroll, 2019.] 

1.1   Which of the following most accurately expresses the author’s main idea in the passage? 

  

  1. As people get older, they tend to lose their memories. 
  2. Asking an old person who is losing their memory to write down stories from their life may help them reconstruct their sense of identity. 
  3. Partition was a very disruptive event in our subcontinent’s history, and we should ensure our grandchildren know about it. 
  4. It can sometimes be tiresome and boring to listen to old people telling the same stories over and over again. 

 

General Knowledge

The U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstructing Congress, the culmination of an effort by Democrats that further inflamed partisan tensions in Washington and deepened the nation’s ideological divide. 

The historic votes, which won the support of almost all Democrats in the House chamber but not a single Republican, leave Trump as only the third president in U.S. history to be impeached -- and the only impeached president likely to win his party’s nomination for reelection. 

The Senate will hold a trial early next year to decide whether the president should be convicted on the charges and removed from office, though the Republicans who have the majority in that chamber will almost certainly acquit him. 

House Democrats took depositions from more than a dozen witnesses, held weeks of hearings, and wrote hundreds of pages documenting Trump’s efforts to pressure the president of [1] to investigate the former Vice President [2] and his son. 

[Extracted, with edits and revisions, from: Billy House, "Donald Trump impeached on two counts by House, setting up Senate trial",

Answer: (c) 

Legal Reasoning

India’s Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 (‘Bill’) starts encouragingly, seeking to protect “the privacy of individuals relating to their personal data”. But by the end, it is clear it is not designed to deliver on the promise. For, even as it rightly requires handlers of data to abide by globally-accepted rules — about getting an individual’s consent first — it disappointingly gives wide powers to the Government to dilute any of these provisions for its agencies. 

Recently, messaging platform WhatsApp said that some Indian journalists and rights activists were among those spied on using technology made by an Israeli company, which by its own admission only works for government agencies across the world.   

Importantly, one of the first to raise a red flag about the Bill’s problematic clauses was Justice B.N. Srikrishna, whose committee’s report forms the basis of the Bill. He has used words such as “Orwellian” and “Big Brother” in reaction to the removal of safeguards against actions of Government agencies. In its report last July, the committee noted that the dangers to privacy originate from state and non-state actors. It, therefore, called for exemptions to be “watertight”, “narrow”, and available for use in “limited circumstances”. It had also recommended that the Government bring in a law for the oversight of intelligence-gathering activities, the means by which non-consensual processing of data takes place. A related concern about the Bill is regarding the constitution of the Data Protection Authority of India (‘DPA’), which is to monitor and enforce the provisions of the Act. It will be headed by a chairperson and have not more than six whole-time members, all of whom are to be selected by a panel filled with Government nominees. This completely disregards the fact that Government agencies are also regulated under the Bill; they are major collectors and processors of data themselves. The sweeping powers the Bill gives to the Government render meaningless the gains from the landmark K.S. Puttaswamy vs. Union of India case, which culminated in the recognition that privacy is intrinsic to life and liberty, and therefore a basic right. That idea of privacy is certainly not reflected in the Bill in its current form. 

[Extracted, with edits and revisions, from Unfulfilled Promise: On Personal Data Protection 

Bill, Editorial by The Hindu, December 16, 2019.] 

1.1    Which of the following views can be correctly attributed to the author of the above passage?   

  1. The idea of privacy is not relevant to the Bill. 
  2. The idea of privacy can be overridden by Government agencies since their role is to protect citizens. 
  3. The idea of privacy as a basic right is not adequately addressed in the Bill in its current form. 
  4. Since the Bill gives sweeping powers to the Government, it is meaningless to reflect the idea of privacy in the Bill. 

Answer: (c)

Rationale:  

The correct answer is (c) – the idea of privacy as a basic right is not adequately addressed in the Bill in its current form. The very essence of the author’s view is that despite the judgment in the landmark K.S. Puttaswamy vs. Union of India case recognizing the right to privacy as a basic right, the Bill in its current form does not sufficiently protect the right to privacy of individuals. None of the other options sets out views that are consistent with those of the author in the passage above.   

1.2    According to the passage, the committee headed by Justice B. N. Srikrishna called for: 

  1. Limiting the grounds on which Government agencies may be allowed to act in a manner that endangers the right to privacy of individuals.      
  2. The right to privacy to be exempted from the ambit of the Bill. 
  3. The right to privacy to be endangered by state and non-state actors. 
  4. Watertight protection to Government agencies that process data of individuals. 

(Answer: (a))   

Rationale: 

The correct answer is (a) - limiting the grounds on which Government agencies may be allowed to act in a manner that endangers the right to privacy of individuals. As is evident from a reading of the passage, the committee anticipated dangers to the right to privacy from Government agencies as well and advocated building safeguards to prevent the same. The passage states that the committee recommended that exemptions allowed to Government agencies should be “watertight”, “narrow”, and available for use in “limited circumstances”. (a) Is the only option consistent with such a recommendation? 

1.3 Suppose the Bill provides a test of proportionality in respect of privacy, which is: “the act which infringes privacy must have a legitimate aim and must be the least restrictive way of achieving that aim”. If a journalist is known for her reporting on corruption in Government agencies and the Government chooses to engage a surveillance company to collect messages exchanged by her on WhatsApp, in order to intimidate her, does it meet the test of proportionality? 

  1. Yes; without collecting the journalists’ WhatsApp messages, there is no way for the Government to prevent her from reporting against it. 
  2. No; the Government should have taken measures such as imprisoning the journalist to ensure that she does not continue reporting. 
  3. No; conducting surveillance on a journalist to intimidate her is not a legitimate aim. (d)   Yes; reporting on issues that show the Government in bad light creates disharmony and the Government uses proportionate force to prevent the same. 

(Answer: (c))   

Rationale:  

The correct answer is (c) - No; conducting surveillance on a journalist to intimidate her is not a legitimate aim. This is because it provides a correct explanation for why the Government’s actions fail the test of proportionality as stated above. The test of proportionality requires that an act that infringes privacy must have a legitimate aim. Conducting surveillance on a journalist in order to intimidate her cannot be a legitimate aim. 

1.4    The author is concerned about the constitution of the DPA under the Bill because: 

(a)    The author believes that Government agencies should not be regulated under the Bill. (b)   The author believes that if the members of the DPA are elected by Government nominees, the DPA will be ineffective in regulating Government agencies. 

  1. The author believes that the DPA should be constituted of major collectors and processors of data. 
  2. The author believes that collectors and processors of data cannot be regulated by persons who have no experience in collecting and processing data.    

(Answer: (b))   

Rationale:   

The correct answer is (b) – the author believes that if the members of the DPA are elected by Government nominees, the DPA will be ineffective in regulating Government agencies. This is because the author’s concern regarding the constitution of the DPA under the Bill relates to the fact that the members of the DPA are to be elected by a panel comprising mainly Government nominees and the author doubts the ability of a body constituted of Government appointees to, in turn, regulate the actions of the Government agencies. 

1.5 The Bill is amended, and the Government’s powers to provide exemptions for its agencies are removed. In such a situation, according to the author:   

  1. The Bill would deliver on its promise of seeking to protect the privacy of individuals relating to their personal data. 
  2. The Bill would not deliver on its promise of seeking to protect the privacy of individuals relating to their personal data. 
  3. The Bill would not deliver on its promise, since it is necessary for the Government to have such exemptions in order to effectively do its work. 
  4. The Bill would be a failure, since the Government would not be able to implement it. 

(Answer: (a))   

Rationale: 

The correct answer is (a) – the Bill would deliver on its promise of seeking to protect the privacy of individuals relating to their personal data. This is clear from the first paragraph of the passage, where the author suggests that the wide powers given to the Government are the reason why the Bill does not live up to its promise. Option (b) is directly contradictory to this, and so cannot be the right option. There is nothing in the passage to support either (c) or (d) as the correct option. 

Rahul Dravid, the head-coach of India’s Under-19 cricket team, explained that the 2018 Under-19 World Cup team selection strategy was about providing opportunities to a lot more players to come into the India Under-19 fold. He explained that more than winning — which is not the right touchstone of success of a program at this level — what matters is how many of the players are able to move to the next level, that is playing first-class cricket. He, therefore, made a conscious decision to not select players from the previous World Cup to the 2018 Under-19 World Cup squad. 

Quantitative Reasoning

At their wedding, Riz and Rekha received gifts amounting to a total of Rs. 1, 00,000 – some of which was in cash and the rest was in the form of other articles. The cash received by them alone amounted to more than Rs. 35,000. All the cash received by them were by way of currency notes of the denominations of Rs. 2000, Rs. 500 and Rs. 200. When all the cash they received was pooled together, there were 10 notes of a certain denomination, 12 notes of a second denomination, and 16 notes of a third denomination. Riz and Rekha decided to spend an amount equal to the total value of the gifts received by them at their wedding (by way of cash and otherwise) in the ratio of 2:3 on buying a guitar and a sitar, respectively. 

 

2.1 Which of the options below states the correct number of currency notes of each denomination received by Riz and Rekha? 

  1. 16 notes of Rs. 2,000; 12 notes of Rs. 500; and 10 notes of Rs. 200 
  2. 12 notes of Rs. 2,000; 10 notes of Rs. 500; and 16 notes of Rs. 200 (c) 10 notes of Rs. 2,000; 12 notes of Rs. 500; and 16 notes of Rs. 200 

(d) 12 notes of Rs. 2,000; 16 notes of Rs. 500; and 10 notes of Rs. 200 

(Answer: (a)) Rationale

The correct answer is (a) - 16 notes of Rs. 2,000; 12 notes of Rs. 500; and 10 notes of Rs. 200, which adds up to a total of Rs. 40,000. The configuration of notes in (b) would add up to Rs. 32,200. The configuration of notes in (c) would add up to Rs. 29,200. The configuration of notes in (d) would add up to Rs. 34,000. Therefore, none of the options other than (a) contains the configuration of notes that would make up for a sum of more than Rs. 35,000. 

2.2 What percentage of the total value of the gifts received by Riz and Rekha was by way of cash? 

  1. 35% 
  2. 65% 
  3. 50% 
  4. 40% (Answer (d)) Rationale: 

The correct answer is (d) – 40%. Since Riz and Rekha received 16 notes of Rs. 2,000; 12 notes of Rs. 500; and 10 notes of Rs. 200 – which amounts to a total of Rs. 40,000, and Rs. 40,000 is 40% of Rs. 1,00,000, the correct answer is 40%. 

2.3 Which of the following represents the correct amounts spent by Riz and Rekha on buying the guitar and the sitar? 

  1. Rs. 20,000 on the guitar and Rs. 30,000 on the sitar. 
  2. Rs. 40,000 on the guitar and Rs. 60,000 on the sitar. 
  3. Rs. 25,000 on the guitar and Rs. 35,000 on the sitar. 
  4. Rs. 80,000 on the guitar and Rs. 1, 20,000 on the sitar. 

(Answer (b)) Rationale

The correct answer is (b) - Rs. 40,000 on the guitar and Rs. 60,000 on the sitar. It is the only option in which the amounts spent on the guitar and the sitar add up to Rs. 1, 00,000 and also conform to the ratio of 2:3.
