ANSWER

I and III


SOLUTION
Option D is the correct answer. By law, Parliament can form a new state by separating territory from any state, by merging two or more states or parts of states. Parliament can also reduce or increase the area or alter the boundary of any state or even change its name. But first, a bill in the matter has to be referred by the President to the legislature of the affected state so that the legislature can express its views within a certain period.
