In question 9, a confusion looms about the architects of the Viceroy's house. Edwin Lutyens was the architect of the Viceroy House, while Herbert Baker was assigned the task to design the Secretariat buildings in front of the Viceroy's House. Baker had designed the Union Building in Pretoria in South Africa and had used some of those elements in designing the Secretariat Buildings. So he had designed in both South Africa as well as India.
