# Which of these is correct for each pair of statements?  Statement 1: When a battery is short-circuited, the terminal voltage is zero  Statement 2: In the situation of a short-circuit, the current is zero

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;Both \: statements\: are\: true.\: Statements\: 2\: is\: a\: correct \: explanation \: for \: statement\: 1 \\ (B)\; Both \: statements\: are\: true.\: Statements\: 2 \: is \: not\: a \: correct\: explanation\: for\: statement\: 1 \\ (C)\; Statement\: 1\: is\: true,\: statement\: 2 \: is \: false \\ (D)\;Statement \: 1\: is\: false, \: statements \: 2\: is \: false \end {array}$

Statement 1 is true
