    Which one of the following legislative powers of the Governor has been wrongly listed?

    A) He summons or prorogues either House of State Legislature

    B) He addresses either or both the Houses at the commencement of the new session after each General Election

    C) He dissolves both the Houses in case of difference over the enactment of law

    D) He sends messages to the State Legislature on a Bill pending before it

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    The governor summons the sessions of both houses of the state legislature and prorogues them. The governor can even dissolve the Vidhan Sabha. In contrast with a state's Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly), the Legislative Council is a permanent body and cannot be dissolved, each Member of the Legislative Council (MLC) serves for a six-year term, with terms staggered so that the terms of one-third of a Council's members expire every two years. This arrangement parallels that for the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Parliament of India.
