    A)  Parliament

    B)  Either House of Parliament

    C)  Rajya Sabha

    D)  Lok Sabha

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] The principle of collective responsibility finds place in Art. 75 (3) where it is stated that the Council of Ministers shall be collectively responsible to the Lok Sabha. In other words, this provision means that a Ministry which loses confidence of the Lok Sabha is obliged to resign. The loss of confidence is expressed by rejecting a Money Bill or Finance Bill or any other important policy measure or by passing a motion of no-confidence or rejecting a motion expressing confidence in the Ministry. When a Ministry loses confidence of the Lok Sabha the whole of the Ministry has to resign including those Ministers who are from the Rajya Sabha. The Ministers fall and stand together. In certain cases the Ministry may advice the President to dissolve Lok Sabha and call for fresh elections.
