B
STATEMENT-1 is True, STATEMENT-2 is True; STATEMENT-2 is NOT a correct explanation for STATEMENT-1

D
STATEMENT-1 is False, STATEMENT-2 is True

Solution

The correct option is B STATEMENT-1 is True, STATEMENT-2 is False
Noble gases do not exist in bonding condition. Thus, their van der walls radius is measured. Van der walls radius is high. 
Van der walls radius is measured in non bonding condition. Therefore, it is always greater than covalent radius. So, the assertion is correct but the reason is wrong.
