Consider the following statements:

  1. The Legislative Council of a State in India can be larger in size than half of the Legislative Assembly of that particular State.
  2. The Governor of a State nominates the Chairman of Legislative Council of that particular State.

Which of the statements given above is /are correct?

  1. 1 only 
  2. 2 only 
  3. Both 1 and 2 
  4. Neither 1 nor 2


The constitution of India has fixed the maximum strength of Legislative council as one-third that of legislative Assembly. Therefore statement 1 is false.

The Chairman of the Legislative Council is elected by the council itself from among its members and is not nominated by the Governor. So, statement 2 is false.

The correct option is D.
