The given statement is False.
O2 and O2 are paramagnetic while   O22 is diamagnetic.

If unpaired electrons are present in an ion/molecule, then it is paramagnetic.
If all electrons are paired, then the ion/molecule is diamagnetic

The MO electronic configurations are given.
O2:KK(σ2s)2(σ2s)2(σ2px)2(π2py)2(π2pz)2(π2py)1(π2pz)1  2 unpaired electrons.

O2:KK(σ2s)2(σ2s)2(σ2px)2(π2py)2(π2pz)2(π2py)2(π2pz)1  1 unpaired electron.

O22:KK(σ2s)2(σ2s)2(σ2px)2(π2py)2(π2pz)2(π2py)2(π2pz)2  0 unpaired electrons.
