  1. Every country that is a democracy gives rights to its citizens.

  2. Every country that gives rights to its citizens is a democracy.

  3. Giving rights is good, but it is not necessary for a democracy.

Answer: A

  1. ‘Every country that is a democracy gives rights to its citizens.’ It is the correct statement because basic rule of democracy is independence. So, in a democratic country every citizen has all the rights listed under the constitution.

  2. ‘Every country that gives rights to its citizens is a democracy.’ Is not completely correct statement because in some non-democratic country rights are also given to citizen.

For example: United Kingdome is a non-democratic country but still its all citizen have all fundamental rights listed in constitution.

  1. ‘Giving rights is good, but it is not necessary for a democracy.’ This is not a correct statement because according to the definition of democracy “Independence” is a basic rule so to the every citizen in democratic country all the rights must have to given all the fundamental rights.

Question 6. Are these restrictions on the right to freedom justified? Give reasons for your answer.

  1. Indian citizens need permission to visit some border areas of the country for reasons of security.

  2. Outsiders are not allowed to buy property in some areas to protect the interest of the local population.

  3. The government bans the publication of a book that can go against the ruling party in the next elections.


  1. According to the Right to Freedom every citizen of India has freedom to visit every place but security is also an important factor so, if any Indian wish to visit border areas then they must have to take permeation and it is the right way for security of Nation.

  2. Some remote and tribal areas are culturally or ecologically vulnerable so for the purpose to maintain it outsiders are restricted to buy property in such areas. This restriction is also justified.

For example: In Jammu and Kashmir outsiders are stickily restricted to buy property under the Article 370.

  1. This restriction is not justified because every citizen has freedom of expression so this is not right to ban the publication of a book that can go against the ruling party in the next elections.
