Answer: B

Statement 1 is incorrect: The Vice President of India is the ex-officio Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, who presides over its sessions. But he is not the member of that house. However, the Deputy Chairman, who takes care of the day-to-day matters of the House in the absence of the Chairman, is elected from amongst the members of the Rajya Sabha. Thus, Deputy Chairman is the member of the House.

Statement 2 is correct: The Vice President is elected by the elected as well as nominated members of both the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha. But they have no voting rights in Presidential elections
