Correct answer is (a) because it allows different organs of government placed at the same level to exercise different powers. This results in a balance of power among various institutions.

Power is shared among different organs of government (i.e., the executive, legislature, and judiciary) to prevent any one branch from becoming too powerful and to ensure that each branch can check and balance the others.
