The questions have been published only for the sake of information and we do not intend to infringe the Copyrights of Symbiosis Law School or Symbiosis International University.

The CLATGyan Team.


  1. Regarding Q.30, I thought the preamble was influenced by USA. Damn :O
    Getting 17 correct otherwise πŸ˜€

  2. preamble is australian constitution (as given in my LST module) and 14 confuses me ’cause i think all the given options are constitutional bodies…googled them!

  3. Planning Commission is a non-Constitutional (not created by the Constitution) and is an Executive body (created by an Executive order).

  4. Are you guys sure about 29?
    Abhors is a tribe but not in Bastar region. Thats what google tells me.
    But there was no better option.

  5. Chaalo.. Not bad.
    Oxygen + nitrogen I thought. Since the nitrogen content is so high in the atmosphere. SP sethuraman I thought. Just noticed him more than negi somehow. His nerdy glasses and chandan tika.

  6. Gk seems to be quite easier and scoring this time with questions from current affairs mostly featuring in the paper! Otherwise SET 2010 had absurd questions like where was Sunda strait located and all…
    Static gk questions were also quite sensible in this paper!!

  7. Since i had not taken de symbi paper ., ans 4 30 is usa nd answer 4 1 is pink revolution or lotus revolution.. Some questions are just de scrapper., 4m irish we had taken “DPSP”

  8. hey…thanks for the solution frm gk section!!!!

  11. Hmm i’m surprised most of u think preamble was adopted 4m irish or uk… Both are wrong .. Usa is de right answer… Nlu-d gk was much standardized dan symbi one …

  12. What is the correct answer for maximum number of airports.. Is it Gujarat or Maharashtra. One of the guy has given d link above. According to that link there are 14 airports in Gujarat. Can u give me the correct answer for this??

    • Question No.24 should be 5 member body:
      Prashant bhushan,Shanti Bhushan,Arvind kejriwal,Pranab Mukherjee and Justice Hegde.

      And the youngest grandmaster should be Parimarjan Negi!
      Please confirm.

      • Now, the transport and Maritime Law expert shall speak.

        Gujju airports – Amreli, Bhavnagar, Bhuj, Deesa, Ahmedabad (SVP Int’l), Diu (the airport falls in Gujarat), Kandla, Jamnagar, Keshod, Porbandar, Radhanpur, Rajkot, Surat, Vadodara.

        Maha airports – Amby Valley (a lovely place), Akola, Baramati, Chanda, Aurangabad, Mumbai (CSIA), Mumbai (Juhu), Dhule, Gandhinagar (Nashik), Ambedkar Int’l (Nagpur), Karad, Gondia, Jalgaon, Murud Kond, Kolhapur, Nanded, Ozar Air Force Base, Pune (Lohegaon), Ratnagiri, Shirpur, Solapur, Vijay Nagar (Nashik).

    • Mayhem doesnt come under tresspass.. I checkd in wiki for all four and apart from Mayhem all come under tresspass.. ! Though nothing bout mayhem is confirmed but deductively looks very much the answer .

    • I think you are crazy.

      I spent *15* Minutes typing that entire list out, and still you say Gujarat!

      I think you need to go and drink some kaapi. Not coffee. Kaapi. Which stirs Southern brains like mine into action (and gets him married, eventually).

  19. Cg team is doing a wonderful thing , but it will be more helpful if u provide aall the answer of set paper…….pls

  20. bhaiya…..what should be the answer of question 42…..because when i solved ur mock test…..according to that mother is not liable for that….because she took all the precaution which was necessary..but all my friends is saying that answer should be (b)…..plzz….reply me soon

  21. I thought the 30th question was U.S.A? I vividly remember reading somewhere that the U.S.A constitution begins with WE THE PEOPLE…

  22. Also, a request to all you guys, I know it’s cumbersome, but if you could type out in full and not use SMS lingo ( the way me or Asad, or Aymen or any Clatgyan team member does), it would help us solve your doubts better.

    Just a request. πŸ™‚

      • I was serious when I meant that, sire.

        Also to add, we try to solve *every body’s* doubts whenever we are asked one. When we miss it, it’s either that the doubt has already been addressed, or it would be if it is relevant for the readers of that thread. If we miss out temporarily on anything, blame it on internships or something, but we usually never do that.

        Another advice: Stop SETing, start CLATting. or NLUOing.
