Solution

The correct option is A True
A parody is a work created to imitate, make fun of, or comment on an original work—its subject, author, style, or some other target—by means of satiric or ironic imitation whereas a satire uses ridicule, sarcasm, humor, irony, or exaggeration, to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. In this context, we can conclude that while parody imitates a subject directly to create a comical effect, satire uses humor to make a social commentary but never directly imitates. So, the given statement is true. Option A is the answer.
