Solution

The correct option is B Seventh Amendment Act of 1955
The Constitution provides a High court for each state. With the Seventh Amendment Act of 1956, the Parliament was authorised to establish a common High Court for two or more states or/and a union territory. Therefore the States of Punjab and Haryana and the Union Territory of Chandigarh have a common High Court situated at Chandigarh. The Bombay High Court presides over Maharashtra as well as Goa.
