Solution

## The correct option is B Statement-1 is true, Statement-2 is true; Statement-2 is a correct explanation for Statement-1Specific heat is defined as the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kg of a substance by 1∘C.C = QmΔTIn isothermal process ΔT=0 . Therefore, C is infinite .In adiabatic process Q=0. Therefore, C is zero.
