|Select the correct answer using the codes given below.|
A) 1 and 4
B) 1 and 3
C) 1, 2 and 3
D) All of these
Correct Answer: A
Solution :[a] Statement 1 is incorrect because the permission of the President is not needed to introduce a Constitution Amendment Bill in Parliament. His prior permission is needed in case of bills like Money Bill and bills to alter the boundary or name of a state. Statement 2 is correct and the power mentioned here has been provided in Article 103 of the Constitution. Statement 3 is also correct. Of course, the power to summon, prorogue and dissolve the Houses of Parliament is exercised by the President only on the advice of the Council of Ministers. Statement 4 is correct as President can promulgate ordinances when the Parliament is not in session (both the Houses).
