Explanation:

Statement-I is correct. Marsupials, which include animals like kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas, are not naturally found in India. They are native to Australia, New Guinea, and nearby islands.

Statement-II is incorrect. Marsupials can thrive in various habitats, not just montane grasslands with no predators. While some marsupials are indeed adapted to grassland environments, others inhabit forests, deserts, and other types of ecosystems.
