    Sir, for ques 1, answer should be D(none of them) because Chairman of Rajya sabha is not elected but it is the Vice President who is elected and he acts as ex-officio chairman of Rajya sabha.Question is asking about election of Chairman.

    @Som , yes , the president may describe the reduction of salaries of all the emloyments except himself during financial emergency , he can also reduce or cancel the grants in aid given to the centre at the implementation of article 360.

    I have a doubt in question (6)
    the answer should be 1) president
    as it is nowhere mentioned that we have not to consider the case of emergency while answering this question
    its been asked whether salary can be reduced , yes it can be by the approval of president.
    Please justify.
