    Authentication: It is the process that determines the identity of a user. It checks the
    user’s credential (Username and password). If both are correct then user can enter into the system.
    Authorization: It is the process of determining whether a user is permitted to access to any part of an application, or any particular resource.
    So in the above question Statement 1 and Statement 2 are correct.
