It was right in ncert...B'cause the present syllabus of ncert is not updated...

In present situation,there are 28 states and 8 union territories...

The changes happened in current (2020)are as follows:

1)Removal of article 370, so J&K and Ladakh became two union territories...

2) Dadra nagar haveli and Daman&Deew are merged together and made a single UT...

Therefore,There now 28 states and 8 UT's...

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.
