Consider the following differences between Adjournment and Prorogation:

  1. While the adjournment is done by the presiding officer of the House, prorogation is done by the president
  2. While adjournment terminates session of the House, prorogation terminates sitting of the House

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [A] 1 Only

Second statement is incorrect because adjournment terminates a sitting and not a session of the House, whereas prorogation not only terminates a sitting but also a session of the House.
