Study the given statements and choose the correct option.

**Statement 1 :** A trinomial x^{2} + px + q can be factorised as (x + a) (x + b) = x^{2} + (a + b)x + ab, where a + b = p and ab = q.

**Statement 2 :** If (x + a) is the factor of a trinomial x^{2} + px + q then at x = a, the value of x^{2} + px + q is zero.

AStatement 1 is true and statement 2 is false.

BStatement 1 is false and statement 2 is true.

CBoth statements 1 and 2 are false.

DBoth statements 1 and 2 are true.
