Statement 1: p-hydroxybenzonic acid has a lower boiling point than $O- hydroxybenzonic acid. Statement 2: O-Hydroxybenzonic acid has intramolecular hydrogen bonding.

$(A)\;\text{Statement -1 is true ; Statement -2 is true. Statement -2 is a correct explanation for statement -1} \\ (B)\;\text{Statement -1 is true ; Statement -2 is true. Statement -2 is not a correct explanation for statement -1} \\(C)\;\text{Statement -1 is true ; Statement -2 is false.} \\(D)\;\text{Statement -1 is false ; Statement -2 is true.} $
