A
Statement I is false, II and III are true
B
Statement I is true, II and III are false
C
Statement I and II are false, III is true
D
Statement II is true, I and II are false

Solution

## The correct option is A Statement I is false, II and III are true1. Terylene is a synthetic polyester fibre whereas rayon is artificial silkThus, statement $$I$$ is false.2. Rayon was the first manufactured fibre. It is made from wood pulp, a naturally occurring, cellulose-based raw material. But it requires chemical processing. So, rayon is neither considered a synthetic fibre nor a natural fibre. Instead, it is considered to be a semi-synthetic fibre. Thus, statement $$II$$ is true.3. PET is used to made bottles and jars. Thus, statement $$III$$ is true.Hence, the correct option is $$\text{A}$$Chemistry
