    [A]10 Years
    [B]15 Years
    [C]12 Years
    [D]5 Years
    Your Ans 10 yrs is not correct
    Correct answer is connective 5 years as judge of High court or consective 10 years as advocate in HC or distinguished jurist in opinion of President

    • raghu

      @sajad tantray
      practicing is different from worked as a judge. Advocates practice in a court. But judges are not practicing there. Hence the answer is 10 years. If its about judges then the answer is 5 years.
