The correct option is B

Explanation:

Statement 1 is incorrect: As per the Election Commission of India, both the registered but unrecognized parties and Independent candidates require 10 proposers, whereas the recognized political parties need only one proposer for filing the nomination.

Statement 2 is incorrect: As of now, there is no provision or convention of separate state funding in India for any of the political parties.

Statement 3 is correct: The recognition of the Election Commission to the parties determines their right to certain privileges like 

  • Allocation of the party symbols
  • Time provision for political broadcasts on the television and radio stations which are owned by the State.
  • Access to electoral rolls.

Statement 4 is incorrect: All the registered parties can have star- campaigners during the election time. But the recognized parties are allowed to have 40, whereas the registered–unrecognized parties are allowed to have only 20 “star campaigners”.
