Answer

Correct Option is 1,2 and 3

Article 123 of the Constitution empowers President to promulgate ordinances during the recess of Parliament. These ordinances have the same force and effect as an act of Parliament but are in the nature of temporary laws. The President can also withdraw an ordinance at any time. However, his power of ordinance-making is not a discretionary power, and he can promulgate or withdraw an ordinance only on the advice of the council of ministers headed by the prime minister. An ordinance is subject to the same constitutional limitation as an act of Parliament. Hence, an ordinance cannot abridge or take away any of the fundamental rights. Hence all statements are incorrect.
