Statement-2 : The net work done by a conservative force on an object moving along closed loop is zero.

1.  Statement $-1$ is true, Statement $-2$ is true; Statement $-2$ is not the correct explanation of Statement $-1$

2. Statement-1 is false, Statement $-2$ is true

3.  Statement-1 is true, Statement-2 is false

4. Statement-1 is true, Statement-2 is true; Statement-2 is the correct explanation of Statement-
