Hint: Lok Sabha is also known as the Lower House of the Parliament of India. The Lok Sabha came into existence in 1952. Shri G.V. Mavalankar was authorized as the first speaker of the Lok Sabha.

Complete answer: The Lok Sabha is one of the two houses of the Indian Parliament. Before knowing much about what Lok Sabha is, we must be familiar with the structure of Indian Parliament. The Parliament of India is the most Supreme authority in India. Our Indian Parliament consists of three governing bodies which are the President, the Upper House generally known as Rajya Sabha and the Lower House which is recognized as Lok Sabha. Indian Lok Sabha consists of 543 seats and its people are elected by the citizens of India. The Speaker of the Lok Sabha rules and governs the whole house. He put forward all the conferences and the meetings that occur in the Lok Sabha.
The State of Uttar Pradesh has the largest Lok Sabha constituency in India. UP holds 80 seats in the Lok Sabha, Parliament. After Independence, the state has participated in 17 Vidhan Sabha elections and in total of 16 Lok Sabha elections after the Independence of India.

Though Lok Sabha is the lower house of the Parliament, yet it has more powers than Rajya Sabha. Some of the powers of Lok Sabha which are superior to Rajya Sabha are following:

1.Whenever there is any law put forward then it must be passed by both the Houses present in the Parliament.

2.Money Bills cannot be originated in Rajya Sabha. Such bills can be introduced only in Lok Sabha and sent to Rajya Sabha for recommendation.

3.The bills passed by Lok Sabha related to budget of the Government or any of the money related law cannot be rejected by Rajya Sabha.

Hence, the correct answer is option (C).

Note: Members of Lok Sabha are directly elected by people of India while Rajya Sabha members are elected indirectly. The members of Lok Sabha are the persons who are the direct delegates of the State. The Members of the Lok Sabha are appointed for a duration of five years.
