All the provided options are incorrect.
There are 28 states in India along with 8 UTs.
Since in year 2019, the government of India (GOI) abrogated the Article 370 of Indian Constitution by passing the Constitutional Order 2019 as per which the state of Jammu and Kashmir will now be subjected to the provisions of Indian Constitution.

A separate bill (Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Bill 2019) was passed that bifucated the state into two Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir(with legislature) and Ladakh(without legislagure).

Also, earlier this year GOI merged the U.T Daman and Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli to a single union territory.

Hence, going by that count India now has 28 states and 8UTs.
HAPPY TO HELP!

There is no correct answer now in this question.
According to the official list of states and union territories of India, there are 28 full fledged states; and 8 union territories in India at present. Because, after the removal of Article 370 from the constitution of India, the state, Jammu & Kashmir converted into two union territories-
(i) Jammu & Kashmir.
(ii) Ladakh.

India is a country located in Southern Asia. With over 1.4 billion people, India is the second most populous country in the world. It is a federal constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 28 states and 8 union territories. All states, as well as the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, Puducherry and the National Capital Territory of Delhi, have elected legislatures and governments, both patterned on the Westminster model. The remaining five union territories are directly ruled by the central government through appointed administrators. In 1956, under the States Reorganisation Act, states were reorganised on a linguistic basis. Since then, their structure has remained largely unchanged. Each state or union territory is further divided into administrative districts.

The legislatures of five states Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra and Uttarakhand and of union territory Jammu and Kashmir meet in different capitals for their summer and winter sessions. Ladakh has both Leh and Kargil as its administrative capitals.

The state and union territory capitals are sorted according to administrative, legislative and judicial capitals. The administrative capital is where the executive government offices are located,
