    D)  Nominated members cannot vote on Money Bills

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

The Governor of any state, if he feels that the Anglo-Indian community is inadequately represented, can nominate 1 member of the community to the Legislative Assembly, while the President can nominate two such members to the Lok Sabha. Thus, Statement [b] is correct. Statement [c] is incorrect as all members of the two Houses of Parliament take part in the election of Vice-President. Statement [d] is also incorrect and there are no such restrictions on the voting powers of nominated members compared to the general members except in the election of the President, of India, where nominated members are not allowed to vote.
