Correct Option is 1 and 4

Question Hour The first hour of every parliamentary sitting is slotted for this. During this time, the members ask questions and the ministers usually give answers. In addition to the ministers, the questions can also be asked to the private members. It is mentioned in the Rules of Procedure. Zero Hour The zero hour is not mentioned in the Rules of Procedure. Thus it is an informal device available to the members of the Parliament to raise matters without any prior notice. The zero hour starts immediately after the question hour and lasts until the agenda for the day (regular business of the House) is taken up. It has been in existence since 1962. Hence only statement 1 and 4 are correct.
