QUIZ – 2016: Insights Current Affairs Quiz

04 October, 2016




Q5, October 1st Quiz (Click Here): Copy-pasting the statement as given in the question – “A High Court may refuse to exercise its writ jurisdiction, whereas the Supreme Court may not”. Copy-pasting the extract from Laxmikanth’s Indian Polity, which has also been provided in the explanation to the question  – “A remedy under article 32 is in itself a fundamental right and hence, the supreme court may not refuse to exercise its writ jurisdiction. On the other hand, a remedy under article 226  is discretionary and hence, a high court  may refuse to exercise its writ jurisdiction. Article 32 does not merely confer power on the supreme court as article 226 does on a high court to issue writs for the enforcement of fundamental rights or other rights as part of its general jurisdiction. The supreme court is thus constituted as a defender and guarantor of the fundamental rights.”


Explanation for Q7, October 2nd and 3rd Quiz (Click Here): If you got the answer right, you may have skipped reading the correct statements (which is essentially an explanation for the question). If you got the answer wrong, you may have only bothered to see the answer (correct option). Hence, we are providing the explanation here for that question – “The COP is the supreme decision-making body of the Convention. All States that are Parties to the Convention are represented at the COP, at which they review the implementation of the Convention and any other legal instruments that the COP adopts and take decisions necessary to promote the effective implementation of the Convention, including institutional and administrative arrangements. A key task for the COP is to review the national communications and emission inventories submitted by Parties. The COP meets every year, unless the Parties decide otherwise. The first COP meeting was held in Berlin, Germany in March, 1995. The COP meets in Bonn, the seat of the secretariat, unless a Party offers to host the session.”
