Hi, the statement 2 is true but just tells about the type type combustion to which the reaction given in statement belong. it does not tell about actual cause of burning of phosphorus in air at room temperature. the reason for statement 1 is that phosphorus is a highly reactive element that's why burns in air at room temperature.
