    a) Parliament permission is needed

    b) With the permission of the Election Commission of India

    d) Not possible to conduct
A good question that need few lines for justification of highlighted answer here in above options.
          Article 55 is conspicuously silent on whether there will be representation of all or each State in the Presidential
          election, although there is vacancy in the electoral College. It only provides the phrase, “the elected members of
          Legislative Assemblies of States” means only those who are actually in office at the time of Presidential Election.
          Neither Article 54 nor Article 55 prescribes the circumstances in which or the time when the election of the 
          President shall take place. Article 55 has no concern with the competence of the election of the President because
          of dissolution of the Legislative Assembly of a State.

          However election of the President can be held even if some seats in the Electoral College are vacant. Because a
          President in office can change the composition of the Electoral College by dissolving one or more hostile Legislative
          Assemblies under Article 172(1) or 174(26) or under 356(1) of the Constitution of India.

          For example, the MLAs of Rajasthan participated in the Presidential Election in 1967 though the Assembly was kept
          under suspended animation under Article 356(1) (c) of the Constitution.
