Pardon my cynicism, but surely those setting and overseeing these questions actually know their subject, for if this was not so it would be a rather inexplicable occurrence. Thus I assume those setting the questions know exactly what they're doing. How can they get away with it? Why are they doing it? I suspect the answer to both of these questions is that "community harmony" , "social cohesion", and "inclusiveness" matters far more than truth.
