Solution

The correct option is D Statement I is incorrect, but Statement II is correct.
The first statement is false.
Basic anhydrides are metallic oxides. They are formed when the water molecule is removed from the bases. Example, when a water molecule is removed from the base ,Ca(OH)2, we are left with CaO. Ca is a metal and CaO is a metallic oxide or a basic anhydride.
The second statement is true.
Non-metallic oxides form acids with water. Example, Sulphur dioxide is a non-metallic oxide. When it reacts with water, it forms Sulphurous acid. The reaction is given as-
SO2 + H2O = H2SO3
