Answer: C
Notes:

Explanation: The Fundamental Rights operate as limitations on the tyranny of the executive and arbitrary laws of the legislature. In short, they aim at establishing ‘a government of laws and not of men’.

  • The Fundamental Rights are named so because they are guaranteed and protected by the Constitution, which is the fundamental law of the land.
  • They are ‘fundamental’ also in the sense that they are most essential for the all-round development (material, intellectual, moral and spiritual) of the individuals.
