**Hint:**We must check the statements first. If both the statements are correct then we must check if there is any relation between the two statements. Finally we must check the options which match the answer.

**Complete step-by-step answer:**

We have statement 1 as If in two triangles, two angles of one triangle are respectively equal to the two angles of the other triangle, then the two triangles are similar.

First, we will try to find out if it is true or not.

Let’s consider two triangles as follows:

Without loss of generality, let us suppose that $\angle A = \angle D$ and $\angle B = \angle E$ ………(1)

We also know that the sum of all the angles of a triangle results in 180$^ \circ $.

So, \[\angle A{\text{ }} + \angle \;B{\text{ }} + \angle C{\text{ }} = {180^ \circ }\] …….(2) and similarly \[\angle D{\text{ }} + \angle E{\text{ }} + \angle F = {180^ \circ }\]…….(3)

Comparing (2) and (3), we have:-

\[\angle A{\text{ }} + \angle \;B{\text{ }} + \angle C{\text{ }} = \angle D{\text{ }} + \angle E{\text{ }} + \angle F\]

This implies \[\angle A{\text{ }} - \angle D{\text{ }} + \angle \;B{\text{ }} - \angle E{\text{ }} + \angle C{\text{ }} = \angle F\] …….(4)

Using (1) in (4):-

$\angle C = \angle F$

Hence, all the corresponding angles are equal and thus, we have:-

$\vartriangle ABC \sim \vartriangle DEF$

This is because of the AAA similarity rule.

Now, in statement two the reason is different.

Hence, option (A) is discarded and since statement 1 is true, so option (D) is discarded as well.

Now, let us check statement 2.

If in two triangles, corresponding angles are equal, then their corresponding sides are in the same ratio and hence the two triangles are similar.

This states that in the given triangles $\dfrac{{AB}}{{DE}} = \dfrac{{BC}}{{EF}}$.

This is a fact related to similar triangles which we can prove by constructing PQ parallel to EF and then using the theorem that: If a line is drawn parallel to one side of the triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.

Hence, it is true as well.

Hence, the correct option is (B).

**Note:**Since the options (A) and (B) are almost similar, we must look at them carefully because we may mistakenly misread them.

We might make the mistake to infer statement 2 as the correct reason because Statement 1 implies statement 2.

We must remember the facts that: sum of all the angles of a triangle results in ${180^ \circ }$ and If in two triangles, corresponding angles are equal, then their corresponding sides are in the same ratio and hence the two triangles are similar.
