    D)  3 and 4

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [c] He must be a citizen of India, not less than 35 years of age and eligible for election as a member of the Rajya Sabha. His term of office is five years and he is eligible for re-election. By virtue of his office, he is the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha. Hence the normal function of the Vice-President is to preside over the Rajya Sabha except when the Vice-President [a] acts as President or [b] discharges the functions of the President. The Vice-President acts as President when there is a vacancy in the office of the President. The Vacancy may occur by reasons of death, resignation, removal by impeachment or otherwise.
