Correct! Wrong!

A type of coastal erosion that involves waves hitting the base of a cliff causing air to be compressed in cracks, joints and folds in bedding planes resulting in repeated changes in air pressure. As air rushes out of the cliff when the wave retreats it leads to an explosive effect as pressure is released. This process is supported further by the weakening effect of weathering. The material breaks off cliffs, sometimes in huge chunks.
