Correct Option is Only 1

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 Governor has constitutional discretion in 1.Reservation of a bill for the consideration of the President. 2.Recommendation for the imposition of the President’s Rule in the state. 3.While exercising his functions as the administrator of an adjoining union territory. 4.Determining the amount payable by the Government of Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram to an autonomous Tribal District Council as royalty accruing from licenses for mineral exploration. 5.Seeking information from the chief minister with regard to administrative and legislative matters of the state. (The president does not has any constitutional discretion) Hence statement 1 is correct and statement 2 and 3 are incorrect.
