the question is not asked in context of Indian Parliament but in context of a political system where Parliament is sovereign like in  Britain.

This is in fact a wonderful question to get wrong. Any hastened reading of the question is likely to get you a wrong output. This must be a PYQ from CSE or CDS or CAPF!! It is a nearly impossible question to frame otherwise.

Read the last line -- "a State where Parliament is sovereign".

Indian Parliament is NOT sovereign. India has constitutional sovereignty
The 'Constituent Assembly' for example was a sovereign body. 
Another example of a sovereign Parliament is the British Parliament. 


Hence, if a Parliament is sovereign then by definition of 'sovereignty, it can do as it pleases.

Googling the word 'sovereign' tells you that it means "having the highest possible authority". 
Thus, in such a case, the Parliament would be above Judiciary, above laws, above everything.

@Neyawn Same has been broadly explained by Subham Sir of ForumIAS in one of Material. Indeed a pure conceptual question.
