Solution

The correct option is C Statement 1 is correct, but Statement 2 is not correct.
  •  Entropy is a measure of disorderliness in a system. 
  • Thus, increase in disorder will increase entropy.
  •  A high energy disordered crystal will have higher entropy.
  • Statement 1 is correct, but Statement 2 is not correct.
