Provision of 10th schedule pertaining to exemption from disqualification in case of split by 1/3rd members of legislature party has been deleted by 91st amendment act. It means that the defectors have no more protection on ground of split. So answer should be 1 only

The grounds for disqualification under the
Anti-Defection Law's are as follows.
(a) If an elected member voluntarily gives up his membership of a political party;
(b) If he votes or abstains from voting in such House contrary to any direction issued by his political party or anyone authorised to do so, without obtaining prior permission.
As a pre-condition for his disqualification, his abstention from voting should not be condoned by his party or the authorised person within 15 days of such incident.
Finally the 91st Constitutional Amendment Act, 2003, changed this. So now at least two-thirds of the members of a party have to be in favour of a "merger" for it to have validity in the eyes of the law. "The merger of the original political party or a member of a House shall be deemed to have taken place if, and only if, not less than twothirds
of the members of the legislature party
concerned have agreed to such merger," states the Tenth Schedule.
