Correct Option is All of the above

The governments are classified into unitary and federal on the basis of the nature of relations between the national government and the regional governments. A unitary government is one in which all the powers are vested in the national government and the regional governments (if it exists) derive their authority from the national government. eg Britain, France, Japan, China, Italy, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Spain. Unitary government features are 1.Single government, that is, the national government which may create regional governments 2.No division of powers. All powers are vested in the national government Hence all statements are correct. A federal government is one in which powers are divided between the national government and the regional governments by the Constitution itself and both operate in their respective jurisdictions independently. eg US, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Russia, Brazil, Argentina. 1.Dual Government (that is, national government and regional government) 2.Division of powers between the national and regional government 3.The supremacy of the Constitution, Rigid Constitution, Independent judiciary 4.Bicameral legislature, Written Constitution
