  2. S1: True; S2: True; S1 and S2 are independent of each other.
  3. S1: True; S2: False.
  4. S1: False; S2: True.


Solution

The correct option is A S1: True; S2: True; S2 is the reason for S1.
As per the 2011 Census, the literacy rate among women is 65.5% whereas the literacy rate among men is about 82.1%. The gap in the literacy rate is because many parents prefer to spend money on their son’s education than their daughter’s. They assume that boys will earn money for the family, whereas the woman will get married and move to another household. This is one of the reasons why many girls do not get an opportunity to pursue higher studies.
