Solution

The correct option is C
Both 1 and 2

Explanation:

Statement 1 is correct: The Eastern ghats demarcate the eastern edges of the Deccan plateau. They stretch from Mahanadi in Odisha to the Nilgiris (Vagai) in Tamil Nadu. One cannot see eastern ghats between Godavari and Krishna.

Statement 2 is correct: Most of the rivers which originate in Western ghats flow towards Bay of Bengal. So the Eastern ghats are highly broken and irregular. Hill groups in Eastern ghats are generally treated as independent units due to physiographic discontinuity.
