    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    1. 1st statement is right. Because · Under Article 168 of the Constitution of India: AU executive actions of the Governor of a State shall be expressed to be taken in the name of Governor, (which include transfer, posting, promotion of civil servants allotted to that state cadre.) so, Yes, as such chief Secretary is "chosen" by Chief minister officially its expressed that chief Secretary is 'appointed' by the governor of the state. Another way to look at it is- even state advocate general, university vice chancellors are 'chosen' by CM from among his favorite people- but officially they're appointed' by the Governor.
