Correct Option is 1 and 3

Australian federation is modeled on the US federation. Thus, residuary powers are with the states. Governors of the states are elected by the people and formally appointed by the British Queen. In Australia, there has been a growth of Cooperative Federalism. Australia has a written constitution. The Australian Constitution defines the responsibilities of the federal government, which include foreign relations, trade, defense, and immigration. Governments of the States and territories are responsible for all matters not assigned to the Commonwealth and they too adhere to the principles of responsible government. In the States, the Queen is represented by a Governor for each State. Hence statements 1 and 3 are correct and statements 2 is incorrect.
