Sol. (2)Statement-2:$P(n)=n^{7}-n$Put $n=1, \quad 1-1=0$ is divisible by 7Let $n=k, \quad P(k)=k^{7}-k$ is divisible by 7Put $n=k+1$$\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{k}+1)=(\mathrm{k}+1)^{7}-(\mathrm{k}+1)$$=\mathrm{k}^{7}+^{7} \mathrm{C}_{1} \mathrm{k}^{6}+\ldots \ldots+^{7} \mathrm{C}_{6} \mathrm{k}+1-\mathrm{k}-1$$=\left(\mathrm{k}^{7}-\mathrm{k}\right)+$ multiple of 7$\Rightarrow \mathrm{P}(\mathrm{k}+1)$ is divisible by 7Hence $\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{n})=\mathrm{n}^{7}-\mathrm{n}$ is divisible by 7Now statement- 1$\mathrm{P}(\mathrm{n})=(\mathrm{n}+1)^{7}-\mathrm{n}^{7}-1$$(\mathrm{n}+1)^{7}=(\mathrm{R}+1)^{7}-\left(\mathrm{n}^{7}-1\right.$$\quad$ divisible by $7 \quad$ is divisible by 7$\Rightarrow \mathrm{P}(\mathrm{n})=(\mathrm{n}+1)^{7}-\mathrm{n}^{7}-1$ is divisible by 7
