False: Young's Modulus is defined as the ratio of the stress applied on a material and the corresponding strain that occurs. As for the same amount of pressure applied on a piece of rubber and steel, the elongation will be much lesser in case of steel than that in the case of rubber and therefore the Young's Modulus of rubber is lesser than that of steel.
