    Solution:

    The above statement is true.
    One thread in a saree, which is burnt and smells like burning hair, is made entirely of pure silk because both silk and hair are protein fibres. So, when these threads are burned, the fragrance of burning hair is released. Then a cotton saree is burned and emits the fragrance of burning paper.
    Cotton and paper contain carbohydrates, which release a similar fragrance when they burn.
