This question contains Statement -1 and Statement-2. Of the four choices given after the statements, choose the one that best describes the two statements.
Statement – I:
For a mass M kept at the centre of a cube of side ‘a’, the flux of gravitational field passing through its sides is 4π GM.
and
Statement – II
If the direction of a field due to a point source is radial and its dependence on the distance ‘r’ for the source is given as 1/r2, its flux through a closed surface depends only on the strength of the source enclosed by the surface and not on the size or shape of the surface
