Solution

The correct option is C Both statements are correct.
Constitutions which can be easily amended are known as flexible or simple constitutions. On the other hand, constitutions that have special procedures for its amendments are considered rigid or complicated constitutions. The Indian Constitution is considered partially flexible and partially rigid. While certain amendments only require a simple majority in the Parliament, others require more complicated procedures, like a special majority, and ratification from state legislatures.
