Correct Option is 1 and 2

Article 213 empowers the Governor to promulgate Ordinance 1. He can promulgate ordinance when the Legislative Assembly is not in session in case of unicameral legislature or when both Legislative assembly and council are not in session in case of a bicameral legislature.It implies that an ordinance can be promulgated by the governor when only one House (in case of a bicameral legislature) is in session because a law can be passed by both the Houses and not by one House alone. 2. His power to promulgate ordinance is not a discretionary power. Council of Ministers (headed by CM) advice is a necessary. 3. His ordinance making power is coextensive with legislative power of the state legislature. This means that he can issue ordinances only on those subjects on which the state legislature can make laws. 4. An ordinance issued by him has the same force and effect as an act of the state legislature. Hence statement 1 and 2 are correct and statement 3 is incorrect.
