Solution

## The correct option is C Both statements are false. On any number line, integers that are on the left side of a number are less than that integer. All negative integers are on the left of 0 on a number line. So zero should be greater than all negative integers. So, Statement 1 is false. Positive integers lie on the right of 0 on a number line. So zero should be less than all positive integers. So, Statement 2 is also false.
