Explanation:

Statement 1 is incorrect. White marble was not used in making the Buland Darwaza and Khankah at Fatehpur Sikri. The Buland Darwaza, a monumental gateway, and the Khankah, a Sufi shrine, are both constructed primarily using red sandstone.

Statement 2 is also incorrect. Red sandstone and marble were not used in making the Bara Imambara and Rumi Darwaza at Lucknow. The Bara Imambara, a historical building, is primarily constructed using bricks and does not incorporate marble or red sandstone. The Rumi Darwaza, a grand entrance gateway, is made entirely of bricks and does not feature red sandstone or marble.
