We all were excited even after the English exam was over.”
Sudip Malakar, a friend of Banerjee said that even if there were no reference points for the question, his friends would have attempted it. “Is there anyone among us who does not know about Kohli?” he added. Headmistress of a girls’ school said it showed that students have to be conversant with current affairs as well as their curriculum.
