Plz provide the correct option asap

Dear Student
Acetone and methanol both are polar compounds, so, they are miscible with each other and can interact with each other by H-bonding. 
The boiling point of methanol is 64.7°C and boiling point of acetone is 56°C.
So, it is very easy to separate them by fractional distillation, as the difference between their boiling point is less than 25 K or 25°C.
Thus, both statement 1 and 2 are correct and statement 2 is the correct explanation for statement 1.
​​​​​​Hence, the correct option is 1.
Regards
