  4. Statement 2 is false and statement 1 is true


Solution

The correct option is A Both statements are true
During the early nineteenth century, there were intense debates on social and religious issues. Many practices were criticised, and people sought to reform them, whereas many confronted the reforms brought about by the reformers. The debates and discussions were carried out in public. These were printed in tracts and newspapers. The print material spread these reformatory ideas not only to faraway places but also to a wide readership. The inclusion of different people and different perspectives led to the emergence of new ideas. Controversial topics like widow immolation or Sati, monotheism, Brahminical priesthood, and idolatry were discussed and debated in newspapers and tracts. These were often printed in the language spoken by the masses to reach a wider audience.
