Correct Option is 1 and 3

Each House of State legislature has its own presiding officer. There is a Speaker and a Deputy Speaker for the legislative assembly and Chairman and a Deputy Chairman for the legislative council. The Speaker is elected by the assembly itself from amongst its members 1.He adjourns the assembly or suspends the meeting in the absence of a quorum 2.He does not vote in the first instance. But, he can exercise a casting vote in the case of a tie. 3.He decides whether a bill is a Money Bill or not and his decision on this question is final. Hence statement 2 is correct. 4.He decides the questions of disqualification of a member of the assembly, arising on the ground of defection under the provisions of the Tenth Schedule. 5.He appoints the chairmen of all the committees of the assembly and supervises their functioning. He himself is the chairman of the Business Advisory Committee, the Rules Committee and the General Purpose Committee. Hence statement 1 and 3 are incorrect.
