Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [C] Only 3

The first statement is not correct. We have to note that the doctrine of popular sovereignty attributes the ultimate sovereignty to People of India and not the parliament of India. The second statement is also not correct and we don’t have features of direct democracy as yet. The third statement is correct. UDHR dates prior to our constitution and it affected very much the minds of constitution framers.
