Read the given statements and select the correct option.
Statement 1 : The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is only one sixth that on the earth. If the earth and moon are assumed to have same density, then the ratio of the radii of moon and earth will be 1:√6.
Statement 2 : Acceleration due to gravity does not depend upon the density of material.
ABoth statements 1 and 2 are true and statement 2 is the correct explanation of statement 1.
BBoth statements 1 and 2 are true but statement 2 is not the correct explanation of statement 1.

An object of mass m is released from rest from point X which is at a height h above Y and slides down a frictionless slope. The object passes point Y with a velocity u as shown in the given diagram.
A second object of mass 0.5m is released from rest from point Z which is at a height 2h above Y. The velocity with which the second object passes point Y in terms of u is
