(c) Statement-I is correct but Statement-II is incorrect

(d) Statement-I is incorrect but Statement-II is correct

 Answer: C

Statement-I is correct. The United States of America (USA) and the European Union (EU) have launched the Trade and Technology Council (TTC) on June 15, 2021. The TTC is a forum for the USA and the EU to cooperate on trade and technology issues. The TTC is expected to focus on issues such as artificial intelligence, semiconductors, and cybersecurity.

Statement-II is incorrect. The USA and the EU have not claimed that they are trying to bring technological progress and physical productivity under their control through the TTC. The TTC is a forum for cooperation, not for control. The USA and the EU have stated that they hope the TTC will help to ensure that the benefits of technological progress are shared widely and that the risks of technological progress are managed effectively.

Therefore, Statement-I is correct but Statement-II is incorrect.
