Correct Answer : (3) The United Kingdom is a classic example of a constitutional monarchy.

Explanation:

Constitutional monarchy is a form of government in which a monarch acts as head of state within the constitution, whether it be a written, uncodified, or blended constitution.

Most constitutional monarchies employ a parliamentary system in which the monarch may have strictly ceremonial duties or may have reserve powers, depending on the constitution.

The United Kingdom is a classic example of constitutional monarchy in which a monarch acts as head of state but exercise his authority in accordance with the constitution.

In Britain, the Glorious Revolution of 1688 led to a constitutional monarchy restricted by laws such as the Bill of Rights 1689 and the Act of Settlement 1701. Thus the United Kingdom is a classic example of a/an Constitutional monarchy.

Some of the other countries with Constitutional monarchy are Belgium, Cambodia, Jordan, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Thailand etc.
