Correct Option is Only 2

Article 161 Power of the Governor to grant pardons and others 1.He can pardon, reprieve, respite, remit, suspend or commute the punishment or sentence of any person convicted of any offence against a state law. 2.He cannot pardon a death sentence even if a state law prescribes for death sentence, the power to grant pardon lies with the President and not the governor. Governor can suspend, remit or commute a death sentence. 3.He does not possess any such power to grant pardon, reprieve, respite, suspension, remission or commutation in respect to punishment or sentence by a court-martial (military court). Hence statement 2 is correct and statement 1 is incorrect.
