Consider the following comparisons of adjournment and Prorogation in Lok Sabha:
1. While adjournment is done by presiding officer of Lok Sabha, Prorogation is done by President of India
2. While adjournment terminates a session of house, Prorogation dissolves the house
Which among the above statements is / are correct?

Answer: [A] Only 1

Adjournment only terminates a sitting and not a session of the House. It is done by presiding officer of the House viz. Lok Sabha Speaker / Deputy speaker or Rajya Sabha Chairman / Deputy Chairman. Adjournment does not affect any kind of the bills.

Prorogation not only terminates the sitting but also a session of the house. Prorogation is done by India’s President. It also does not affect the bills.
