### Solution:

It is given that AB=5cm and a circle of radius 4 cm passes through points A and B.
Steps of Construction:
(i) Draw a line segment AB=5 cm.
(ii) Draw a perpendicular bisector of AB.
(iii) With center A and radius 4 cm, draw an arc which intersects the perpendicular bisector at O.
(iv) With center O and radius OA draw a circle.
No, we cannot draw a circle of radius 2 cm passing through A and B because when we draw an arc of radius 2 cm with center A, the arc will not intersect the perpendicular bisector and we will not find the center.
i.e., 2+2=4 cm is shorter than 5 cm.
Hence, the given statement is false.
A line segment AB is 5cm in length. Draw a circle of radius 4 cm passing through A and B. Hence, we cannot draw a circle of radius 2 cm passing through A and B.
Therefore, the correct option is (2).
