    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    [a] 1 and 2 only. Original jurisdiction means the power of a high court to hear disputes in the first instance, not by way of appeal. High courts do not have any original criminal jurisdiction and thus cases related to murders can be taken to High court only as appeal. The original jurisdiction includes - [a] Matters of admirality, will, marriage, divorce, company laws and contempt of court, [b] Disputes relating to the election of members of Parliament and state legislatures, [c] Regarding revenue matter or an act ordered or done in revenue collection, [d] Enforcement of fundamental rights of citizens, (e) Cases ordered to be transferred from a subordinate court involving the interpretation of the Constitution to its own file.
