Step 1
1) The false statement is : The rationing function of prices is not allowed to freely operate when the government imposes price controls.
Step 2
2) We know that, $C/5=\left(F-32\right)/9$
Putting $F=104$ we get, $C/5=\left(104-32\right)/9$
i.e., $C/5=72/9$
i.e., $C/5=8$
i.e., $C=5\cdot 8$
i.e., $C=40$
Therefore, ${40}^{\circ }C$ is equivalent to ${104}^{\circ }F$
