Solution

The correct option is C Statement 1 is true but statement 2 is false.
The first known democracy in the world was Athens, Greece. Athenian democracy developed around the fifth century BCE. All citizens of Athens were required to take an active part in the government. Women, children, and slaves were not considered citizens. So, they could not participate in democratic processes, and were not granted the right to vote.
