Correct Answer - Option 3 : Statements 1 is true and 2 is false

Concept:

Capacitance:

• Capacitance is defined as it is the capability of an element to store electric charge within it. It is also defined the amount of charge
required to create a unit p.d. between its plates.
• Capacitance is the property that possesses the capacitor. Its unit is Farad.
• It opposes the sudden change in voltage.

It is given by,

$C=\frac{Q}{V} Farad$

Inductance:

• Inductance is the property of a material by virtue of which it opposes any changes of magnitude or direction of current passing through the conductor.
• Inductance is said to be one henry when the current through a coil of the conductor changes at the rate of one ampere per second induction one volt across the coil.
• The unit of inductance is Henry
