    A)  1, 2 and 3                    

    B)  1 and 4

    C)  2, 3 and 4                    

    D)  All of these

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] The power of the legislature to formulate policy is real based as it is in the Constitution, but has lost out to the executive in recent times in a Parliamentary form of government. In the course of approving legislation, the Parliament performs by deliberating, scrutinising, criticising and publishing government policies and their consequences for the public on the floor of the house. Developing countries lack a strong bureaucratic base and the executive plays a larger role on policy formulation. It is because of greater concentration of power in government heads coupled with less responsiveness to policies and the legislature.
