    The given statement is true.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The given statement is true.

    The correlation between two variables is + 0.98.

    Coefficient of correlation measure linear relation between two variables. The positive coefficient of correlation tells that with increase in one variable leads to increase in other variables.

    Thus, a positive correlation of 0.98 means that the two variables have a strong relationship and with increase in one variable, the other variable increases.
