1 option is right, 2nd option is wrong as Mahatma Gandhi was also not there and option 3 is wrong as people were not directly elected. The Constituent Assembly was to be a partly elected and partly nominated body. Moreover, the members were to be indirectly elected by the members of the provincial assemblies, who themselves were elected on a limited franchise.
