Answer

Correct Option is 1 and 3

The House of Lords is the second chamber or upper house, of United Kingdom's bi-cameral (two-chamber) Parliament. Together with the House of Commons and the Crown, the House of Lords form the UK Parliament. The House of Lords can propose and make changes, known as amendments. However its powers are limited, if it doesn’t approve of a piece of legislation, it can only delay its passage into law for up to a year. After that, there are rules to ensure that the wishes of the House of Commons and the Government of the day prevail. Hence statement 2 is incorrect. The House of Lords could be labeled as one of the weakest upper houses in the world. It is simply a delaying chamber as it can only delay an ordinary bill for a maximum period of one year and a money bill for a maximum period of one month. Hence statements 1 and 3 are correct.
