Answer

Correct Option is 1 and 2

Articles 52 to 78 in Part V of the Constitution deal with the Union executive. Thus, the Vice-President’s election, like that of the President’s election, is held in accordance with the system of proportional representation by means of the single transferable vote and the voting is by secret ballot. The Vice-President, like the president, is elected not directly by the people but by the method of indirect election. He is elected by the members of an electoral college consisting of the members of both Houses of Parliament. This electoral college is different from the electoral college for the election of the President in the following two respects 1. It consists of both elected and nominated members of the Parliament (in the case of the president, only elected members). 2. It does not include the members of the state legislative assemblies (in the case of President, the elected members of the state legislative assemblies are included). Hence statement 1 and 2 are correct and statement 3 is incorrect.
