Answer: [A] Only 1 & 2

Article 35 provides that the freedoms guaranteed under the article 19 automatically get suspended on the proclamation of National Emergency. For this Article 359 empowers the president to suspend the fundamental rights given by other articles also. However, Article 20 (protection in respect of conviction for offences) and Article 21 (Protection of life and personal liberty) cannot be suspended by any order under article 359.
