Solution

False

Correction. Lateritic rocks are formed through chemical weathering.

Explanation.

Lateritic rocks are largely composed of iron and aluminum. Oxidation majorly occurs in ferrous rocks containing iron. The iron in these rocks reacts with the oxygen in the atmosphere resulting in the formation of iron oxide and rusting the rocks from within. This chemical reaction decomposes the rocks from within and results in its weathering.
