Question:

Given below are two statements :

Statement – I : An electric dipole is placed at the centre of a hollow sphere. The flux of electric field through the sphere is zero but the electric field is not zero anywhere in the sphere.

Statement – II : If $\mathrm{R}$ is the radius of a solid metallic sphere and $\mathrm{Q}$ be the total charge on it.

The electric field at any point on the spherical surface of radius $r(<R)$ is zero but theelectric

flux passing through this closed spherical surface of radius $r$ is not zero.

In the light of the above statements. Choose the correct answerfrom the option given below :

Option :

1. (1) Statement I is true but Statement II is false

2. (2) Statement I is false but Statement II is true
