Solution

The correct option is A Statement 1 is true and statement 2 is false
Petroleum is found in the anticlines or domes and fault traps in the rocks that are from the tertiary age. These rocks are nothing but the layered sedimentary rocks. Petroleum is trapped in the porous layer of limestone or sandstone sandwiched between two non-porous layers. The oil can flow through this porous layer, while the two non-absorbent layers prevent the oil from rising or sinking.
