    Consider an ordinary bill that originated in the legislative assembly and is sent to the legislative council. If the council rejects the bill then

    A) A joint sitting is called.

    B) The bill ends and becomes dead

    C) Legislative assembly passes the bill for the second time.

    D) None of the above

    Correct Answer: C

    The legislative assembly can override the legislative council by passing the bill for the second time and not vice versa. The Constitution does not provide for the mechanism of joint sitting of two Houses of the state legislature to resolve a deadlock between them over the passage of a bill. When a bill, which has originated in the legislative council and sent to the legislative assembly, is rejected by the latter, the bill ends and becomes dead.
