|Select the correct answer using the codes given below.|
A) Only 1
B) 1 and 2
C) 2 and 3
D) All of these
Correct Answer: C
Solution :[c] Zero Hour is not recognised in Lok Sabha rules and is used by members to raise issues, which cannot be raised under normal Lok Sabha rules. Thus, Statement 1 is incorrect. Half-an-hour discussions are held at the end of a particular day's sitting to hold discussions on important matters raised through questions during Question Hour. Thus, Statement 2 is correct. Statement 3 is also correct since Question Hour is meant only for raising questions (including supplementaries) and not for debates.
