Answer

Correct Option is Adjournment Sine Die

Prorogation Prorogation means the termination of a session of the House by an order made by the President under article 85(2)(a) of the Constitution. Prorogation terminates both the sitting and session of the House. Adjournment An adjournment suspends the work in a sitting for a specified time, which may be hours, days or weeks. In this case, the time of reassembly is specified. An adjournment only terminates a sitting and not a session of the House. The power of adjournment lies with the presiding officer of the House. Dissolution A dissolution ends the very life of the existing House, and a new House is constituted after general elections are held. Adjournment Sine Die Adjournment sine die means terminating a sitting of Parliament for an indefinite period. In other words, when the House is adjourned without naming a day for reassembly, it is called adjournment sine die. The power of adjournment sine dies lies with the presiding officer of the House. Hence option b is correct.
