Explanation:

The statement that there is only one citizenship and one domicile in India is correct. In India, there is a single concept of citizenship, and individuals are not differentiated based on their domicile.

The statement that a citizen by birth only can become the Head of State is incorrect. In India, a person who is a citizen by birth, as well as a person who is a citizen by naturalization, can become the Head of State, subject to the eligibility criteria outlined in the Constitution.

The statement that a foreigner once granted citizenship cannot be deprived of it under any circumstances is incorrect. The Indian government has provisions in place to revoke citizenship in certain cases, such as fraudulent acquisition, voluntary acquisition of another country's citizenship, or engaging in activities prejudicial to national security.

Therefore, only statement 1 is correct. The answer is (a) 1 only.
