Solution

The correct option is A Both statements $$1$$ and $$2$$ are correct
Vegetative propagation is the formation of new plants from vegetative units such as buds, tubers, rhizomes, etc. This method produces a large number of population of clones in a short time. It preserves purity, resistance and food qualities of race/variety indefinitely. Fleshy roots (root tubers) which develop adventitious buds also take part in vegetative propagation, e.g., sweet potato.
So, the correct answer is 'Both statements 1 and 2 are correct'.
