Solution

The correct option is D STATEMENT-1 is false but STATEMENT-2 is true
CO bond length of aliphatic alcohols is greater than that of phenols. In phenol, the delocalisation of the lone pair of O into the phenyl ring happens which develops a new π bond character between CO and hence results in the shortening of bond length.
