Answer

Correct Option is 1,2,3 and 4

Article 15 provides that the State shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. The two crucial words in this provision are ‘discrimination’ and ‘only’. The word discrimination means to make an adverse distinction with regard to or to distinguish unfavourably from others. The use of the word ‘only’ connotes that discrimination on other grounds is not prohibited. Hence only statement 5 is incorrect.
