Answer

Correct Option is Only 2

Articles 52 to 78 in Part V of the Constitution deal with the Union executive. The President is the head of the Indian State. He is the first citizen of India and acts as the symbol of unity, integrity and solidarity of the nation. The President is an integral part of the Parliament of India and enjoys the following legislative powers 1. He can nominate two members to the Lok Sabha from the Anglo-Indian Community. Hence statement 2 is correct. 2. He can summon or prorogue the Parliament and dissolve the Lok Sabha. He can also summon a joint sitting of both the Houses of Parliament, which is presided over by the Speaker of the Lok Sabha. 3. He can address the Parliament at the commencement of the first session after each general election and the first session of each year. 4. He can send messages to the Houses of Parliament, whether with respect to a bill pending in the Parliament. Money bills can be introduced in Parliament only with his prior recommendation (this is a financial power). Thus Statement 1 is incorrect.
