"You can't give such direct questions in the final year. Final year questions are usually applied questions to test the critical thinking knowledge/skills of students. It is also a gross oversight on the part of the HOD because the questions are supposed to go through him to the departmental exam committee for vetting before it can be administered to students. Gross negligence on the part of the course lecturer, HOD and the exam committee.."
