We perform tests of the spin and parity of the Higgs boson using dedicated searches for two
specific non-standard Higgs boson hypotheses: a pseudoscalar Higgs boson with JP = 0− and a
graviton-like Higgs boson, with JP = 2+, both assuming a boson mass mX = 125 GeV/c2.
We search for these exotic states in the WX ➝ lvbb, ZX ➝ llbb, and (WX + ZX) ➝ METbb modes,
making use of expected kinematical differences between events containing exotic Higgs bosons
and those containing Standard Model Higgs bosons. The data correspond to an integrated
luminosity of 9.45 fb-1. We observe no significant deviations in the data from the
predictions of the Standard Model with a Higgs boson of mass mH = 125 GeV/c2, and set bounds on
the possible rate of production of each exotic state, both allowing for an admixture of
Standard Model production and exotic production, and assuming only exotic production.
