Question 87 Explanation: 

The resignation letter is submitted to the President, and not the Chief Minister. A governor holds office for a term of five years from the date on which he enters upon his office. However, this term of five years is subject to the pleasure of the President. The Supreme Court held that the pleasure of the President is not justifiable. The governor has no security of tenure and no fixed term of office. He may be removed by the President at any time without mentioning any grounds for his removal.

Civics Test Questions answers
Question 90 Explanation: 

The same question was posted here earlier.
* The unprecedented number of deaths (2,040) in 2015 forced the authorities to think of response measures.
* Ahmedabad, the first city to develop a heat wave response system in 2013 following its dreadful experience with heat in 2010, offered a model. This response system was created with support from public health institutions. Preparing the health system to identify symptoms of heat stress and providing treatment through urban health centres is one intervention it decided upon. The plan involved other relatively simple and straightforward measures like reviewing school timetables, rescheduling work timings to cooler hours, making water widely available and reserving religious sites and libraries as cooling centres.
* Thanks to prodding by NDMA, nine state governments prepared and implemented heat action plans in the last two years. A targeted awareness campaign, including temperature alerts and instructions to avoid heat, too helped bring down deaths.

IE: Remarkable success in reduction of heat-related deaths;
From last year: TH: How Ahmedabad beat the heat;
