For CFS.1

Co Act doesnt require parent company auditor to review work of subsidiary company auditor.

SA 600 prescribes responsibility of parent company auditor, which depending on qualification of subsidiary auditor and circumstances, can range from discussion, summary, questionnaire, visit only for documents with respect to consolidation

SEBI LODR says parent company auditor has to review audit done by subsidiary, this review is done as per SEBI guidelines it has nothing to do with SA 600 & Co Act

This  MCQ is based on Co Act requirement no need to apply SA 600 or SEBI Guidelines

For CFS.2
Financial Statements of components may remain unaudited sometimes. In this case of JV is consolidated which is unaudited.
If its immaterial its absolutely fine, parent company may give other matter paragraph to highlight this.
If its material then parent company will have to qualify  or give disclaimer as the case may be.
