Answer

Correct Option is Parliament

In case of Parliament (Ordinary bill) A deadlock between the two Houses takes place when the second House, after receiving a bill passed by the first House, rejects the bill or proposes some amendments that are not acceptable to the first House or does not pass the bill within six months. The Constitution provides for the mechanism of joint sitting of two Houses of the Parliament to resolve a deadlock between them over the passage of a bill Hence Option (a) is correct. In case of State legislature (Ordinary bill) A deadlock between the two Houses takes place when the legislative council, after receiving a bill passed by the legislative assembly, rejects the bill or proposes amendments that are not acceptable to the legislative assembly or does not pass the bill within three months. The Constitution does not provide for the mechanism of joint sitting of two Houses of the state legislature to resolve a deadlock between them over the passage of a bill.
