Explanation:

1. The statement "The first APMCHUD was held in India in 2006 on the theme 'Emerging Urban Forms - Policy Response and Governance Structure'" is incorrect. The first APMCHUD conference was actually held in New Delhi in December 2006 under the thematic of "A vision for sustainable urbanization in the Asia-Pacific by 2020." Therefore, statement 1 is incorrect.

2. The statement "India hosts all the Annual Ministerial Conferences in partnership with ADB, APEC, and ASEAN" is incorrect. The APMCHUD is an intergovernmental mechanism for collaboration and cooperation in the field of housing and development among Asia-Pacific countries. It was established under the support of UN-Habitat. The hosting of the conference rotates among the member countries, and the host is selected based on the consent of the members in the previous conference. Therefore, statement 2 is incorrect.

As both statements are incorrect, the correct answer is (d) Neither 1 nor 2.
