Correct option is C)

Binomial nomenclature is the system of providing organisms with appropriate and distinct scientific names consisting of two words, first the genus name, followed by the species name.
For example, the scientific name of the pea plant is Pisum sativum.
Pisum is the genus name and sativum is the species name.
So, the first statement is correct but the second statement is incorrect.
Therefore, option C is the correct answer.
