    C)  3 only 

    D)  1, 2 and 3

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    [a] The council of ministers is collectively responsible to the Lok Sabha. This means that all the ministers own joint responsibility to the Lok Sabha for all their acts of omission and commission. Article 75 contains the principle of individual responsibility. It states that the ministers hold office during the pleasure of the president. In India there is no provision in the Constitution for the system of legal responsibility of a minister. It is not required that an order of the President for a public act should be countersigned by a minister.
