Given below are two statements: Statement $I$: The problem Is $L_1 \wedge L_2 = \phi$? is undecidable for context sensitive languages $L_1$ and $L_2$ Statement $II$: The problem Is $W \in L$? is decidable for context sensitive language $L$. (where $W$ is ... $II$ are false Statement $I$ is correct but Statement $II$ is false Statement $I$ is incorrect but Statement $II$ is true
