Is this statement true or false – DHCP addresses have a limited lifespan

Is this statement true or false – DHCP addresses have a limited lifespan, and once that time period expires, the system using that IP address must either renew use of that address or request another address from the DCHP server?

I also need to know why the statement is true or false

Yes, it is true that DHCP addresses have a limited lifespan, and once that time period expires, the system using that IP address must either renew use of that address or request ,another address from the DCHP server. This is because the leases are retained in the DHCP server for a period of time after expiration, and the cleanup procedure occurs every one hour.
