ANSWER

2 only


SOLUTION
It is the administrative function of both the Courts, i.e. the Supreme Court and the High Court to appoint the officers and servants of the court. Article 146 deals that all the officers and servants of the Supreme Court shall be appointed by the Chief Justice of India. Further clause 3 of the Article provides that the administrative expenses shall be charged upon the Consolidated Fund of India. 
The same power for appointment of officers and servants of High Court and administrative expenses is dealt under Article 229 of the Constitution of India.
