  2. Chief Minister is the head of the state government

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [C] Both 1 & 2

First statement is correct because a person can be appointed as Chief Minister even if he is not a member of State legislature at the time of appointment, but he should become a member to the state legislature within six months from the time of appointment, failing to do so, he loses his post. Second statement is also correct.
