So, the questions are ignored for all candidates,” reads the CLAT response to discrepant questions.

The CLAT 2017 Committee has scrapped as many as four questions as they admitted that those questions are discrepant in nature. As per the examination expert committee, one question each from English Comprehension, General Knowledge, Elementary Mathematics and Logical Reasoning section had discrepancies. “For this question, discrepancy is found in question/ answer. So, this question is ignored for all candidates,” reads the official note against a wrong question in the revised CLAT answer key. The same note appears with as many as four questions. No marks will be awarded or deducted for these four questions.
