Answer

Correct Option is 1 and 2

Unwritten character of the British constitution is its most important feature. There is no such thing as a written, precise, and compact document, which may be called as the British constitution. The main reason for this is that it is based on conventions and political traditions, which have not been laid down in any document, unlike a written constitution, which is usually a product of a constituent assembly. Indian Constitution, in comparison, is the lengthiest written constitution in the world. Hence statements 1 and 2 are correct and statement 3 is incorrect. The British constitution is a classic example of a flexible constitution. It can be passed, amended, and repealed by a Simple Majority (50% of the members present and voting) of the Parliament, no distinction is made between constitutional law and ordinary law. (Hence, Both are treated alike).
