  2. Prior permission of the speaker is required to move an adjournment motion in lower house.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [B] Only 2

First statement is incorrect because adjournment motion is allowed only in Lok Sabha {or in state legislative assembly} and NOT in Rajya Sabha {or in state legislative council} because it has an element of censure against the government.
