    I have doubt in the first question. Money bill can originate only in Lok Sabha not in legislative assembly. Correct me if I am wrong. These questions are like gems.

    hey. Referring to question no.14…
    the fate of legislative council itself depends on Assembly and Parl. So dont you think that the answer should be 1,2,3.??

    • GKToday

      @ Rishanth
      I agree with you, but that is not ‘dissolution’, that is “abolition” which can be done in a different way.

    Please review your answer to 1st quesion http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Money_bill#India page says only Lok and Rajya sabha is involved . Who is correct?

    Thanks

    • GKToday

      That is correct. But the Money Bill related to state Governments such as Rajasthan, UP and Haryana, originate in Legislative assemblies. So given answer is correct.

    Q5. The minister is individually responsible to the president according to the article 75(2) and collectively responsible to the House of People according to article 75(3). The answer would be president, as the minister holds the office during the pleasure of the president. Thanks

    quiz is good but after looking at the current scenario, some more depth in the question is required…esp. regarding interpretation of important articles as well as recent judgements given by honourable SUPREME COURT.
