False, as soon as Marginal Cost (MC) starts rising, Average Variable Cost (AVC) does not start rising. This is because MC falls faster than AVC, attains its minimum and thereafter starts rising. There is a region, where, MC rises but AVC continues to fall. Thus, it is not AVC would not start rising up as soon as the MC curve starts rising.
