Correct Option is 3 and 4

The Constitution of India envisages the same pattern of government in the states as that for the Centre, that is, a parliamentary system. Articles 153 to 167 in Part VI of the Constitution deal with state executive. The state executive consists of the governor,the chief minister,the council of ministers and the advocate general of the state. The Constitution specified only two qualifications for the appointment of a person as a governor 1.He should be a citizen of India 2. He should have completed the age of 35 years There are two conventions developed in this regard over the years. 1.He should be an outsider meaning he should not belong to the state where he is appointed, so that he is free from the local politics. 2.While appointing the governor,the president is required to consult the chief minister of the state concerned, so that the smooth functioning of the constitutional machinery in the state is ensured. These conventions have been violated several times. Hence only statement 3 and 4 are incorrect and statement 1 and 2 are correct.
