Answer: B
Notes:

Explanation: Quorum is the minimum number of members required to be present in the House before it can transact any business.

  • It is one- tenth of the total number of members in each House including the presiding officer.
  • It means that there must be at least 55 members present in the Lok Sabha and 25 members present in the Rajya Sabha, if any business is to be conducted.
  • If there is no quorum during a meeting of the House, it is the duty of the presiding officer either to adjourn the House or to suspend the meeting until there is a quorum.
