Explanation:

Statement 1 is correct. The 'National Agriculture Market' (eNAM) scheme is indeed a pan-India electronic trading portal for agricultural commodities. It aims to create a unified national market for agricultural produce by connecting existing agricultural produce market committees (APMCs) through an online platform.

Statement 2 is also correct. The implementation of the eNAM scheme provides farmers with access to a nationwide market. This enables them to explore better opportunities, reach a larger customer base, and receive prices that are commensurate with the quality of their produce. It promotes transparency and competition, leading to better price discovery for farmers.

Therefore, the correct answer is (c) Both 1 and 2.
