    2. Both of them cannot make ordinances on matters, which would require Money Bills.
    3. Ordinances can be used not just to create new laws, but also to repeal or modify existing laws.
    Select the correct answer using the codes given below.

    A)  Only 1             

    B)  1 and 2

    C)  Only 2

    D)  All of these

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [c] White the President does not require any external permission to make ordinances, the Governor does require the approval from the President before making ordinances in certain areas like those, which in the form of a Bill would require the previous permission of the President before introduction into the State Legislature or those, which in the form of a Bill would have made the Governor reserve them for the consideration of the President. Ordinances can be used in any area that the particular legislature has jurisdiction to make laws, including Money Bills. As explained above, if the legislature has the right to repeal or modify a law, then it can be done so with an ordinance as well.
