Explanation –

Statements 1 and 3 are correct. Adjournment sine die is performed by the presiding officer of the House (Speaker in the case of Lok Sabha), while prorogation is done by the President of India. The adjournment sine die of the Lok Sabha does not affect the ongoing work of Parliamentary Committees, which continue to function even when the House is not in session.
