Q. Which of the following is/are true about Supreme Court:
1. Supreme Court is the guarantor and defender of fundamental rights of citizens.
2. Writ jurisdiction of High Court is narrower than of Supreme Court
Which of the above statements is/are correct?

[A] 1 only

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 and 2

Answer: A
Notes:

Statement 2 is wrong: SC can issue writ only for the enforcement of Fundamental rights and not for other purposes. HC, on the other hand, can issue writ not only for the enforcement of FR but also for other purposes.  

Thus, Writ jurisdiction of High Court is wider than of Supreme Court
