Answer

Correct Option is 1 and 2

Articles 256 to 263 in Part XI of the Constitution deal with the administrative relations between the Centre and the states. The Constitution contains the following provisions to secure cooperation and coordination between the Centre and the states 1. The Parliament can provide for the adjudication of any dispute or complaint with respect to the use, distribution and control of waters of any inter-state river and river valley. Hence statement 3 is incorrect. 2. The distribution of legislative powers between the Centre and the states is rigid. The Centre cannot delegate its legislative powers to the states and a single state cannot request the Parliament to make a law on a state subject. Such a rigid division in the executive sphere may lead to occasional conflicts between the two. Hence statement 2 is correct. Thus, the President may, with the consent of the state government, entrust to that government any of the executive functions of the Centre. Conversely, the governor of a State may, with the consent of the Central government, entrust to that government any of the executive functions of the state. This mutual delegation of administrative functions may be conditional or unconditional. Hence statement 1 is correct.
