How the resolutions passed in United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and United Nations Security Council (UNSC) are different from each other?
1. The UNGA resolutions are legally non-binding upon member nations , while the UNSC Resolutions are legally binding upon all members.
2. The UNGA resolutions are sponsored by any member, UNSC Resolutions are sponsored by only permanent members.
Select the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [D] Neither 1 nor 2

UNGA resolutions are legally non-binding upon member nations but saying that  UNSC Resolutions are legally binding upon all members, is incorrect. This is because the UNSC resolutions are of two kinds taken as per chapter VI and VII of the UN Charter which correspond to nonbinding and binding resolutions. It is correct to say that UNGA resolutions are sponsored by any member, however, again it is incorrect to say that UNSC Resolutions are sponsored by only permanent members.
