So, without further ado, here's the Know Your Constitution Question of The Day #6.

 The Preamble to India's Constitution starts with ‘We, the people of India, having solemnly resolved...'.  The constitution of South Korea begins with 'We, the people of Korea, proud of a resplendent...' The constitutions of Bangladesh, Zambia, and many other countries, also begin with ‘We, the people’.

This common beginning is borrowed from the preamble of the constitution of which country?

Here are your options.

All set? Okay, time for the right answer.

And the Correct Answer Is…
