Answer

Correct Option is 1,2 and 3

Summoning The president from time to time summons each House of Parliament to meet. But, the maximum gap between two sessions of Parliament cannot be more than six months. In other words, the Parliament should meet at least twice a year. A session of Parliament is the period spanning between the first sitting of a House and its prorogation (or dissolution in the case of the Lok Sabha). The period spanning between the prorogation of a House and its reassembly in a new session is called ‘recess’. Adjournment A session of Parliament consists of many meetings. An adjournment suspends the work in a sitting for a specified time, which may be hours, days or weeks. It only terminates a sitting and not a session of the House. It is done by presiding officer of the House. It does not affect the bills or any other business pending before the House and the same can be resumed when the House meets again. Adjournment Sine Die Adjournment sine die means terminating a sitting of Parliament for an indefinite period. The power of adjournment, as well as adjournment sine, die lies with the presiding officer of the House. Hence only statement 4 is incorrect and statement 1,2 and 3 are correct. Prorogation It not only terminates a sitting but also a session of the House. It is done by the president of India. It also does not affect the bills or any other business pending before the House.
