A) 1 and 2
B) 1, 3 and 4
C) 3 and 4
D) All of these
Correct Answer: D
Solution :[d] Statement 1 is incorrect because Speaker is the final interpreter of the provisions of the Constitution of India. The Speaker does take part in committee business and is in fact the Chairman of the Business Advisory Committee, Rules Committee and General Purpose Committee. Thus, Statement 2 is incorrect. The Speaker does not need to certify a Bill as a Constitution Amendment Bill since the Bill itself mentions that it intends to amend the Constitution. Thus, Statement 3 is also incorrect. Statement 4 is also incorrect since there is no such provision. Thus, the correct answer is [d].
