    B)  1 and 2

    C)  Only 3

    D)  None of these

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [c] Legislation in Union Territories is not done by presidential regulations, but by laws made by Parliament for cases, where such territories do not have Legislative Assembly and by both Parliament and State Legislature for cases, where the territories have their own assemblies. Along with Delhi, Puducherry have its own High Court. Union Territories can be given High Courts of their own or they can be included in the jurisdiction of some other High Court. Both the Legislative Assemblies of Union Territories and the Parliament have powers to make laws in respect of items in the State List and the Concurrent List for that territory and in case of a conflict between the two laws the union law prevails.
