Solution

The correct option is C A is true, but R is false.
Life Expectancy Index or the LEI refers to the average number of years an infant tends to survive or the average number of years a person is expected to live in a particular country. This throws light on the health determinants of a country.

On the other hand, the Education Index uses mean and expected years of schooling. Mean years of schooling represents the average number of years spent by an adult in school till the age of 25.
