For question number two statements are given- one labelled Assertion (A) and the other labelled Reason (R). Select the correct answer to these questions from the codes (a), (b), (c) and (d) as given below:
a) Both A and R are true and R is correct explanation of the assertion.
b) Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of the assertion.
c) A is true but R is false.
d) A is false but R is true.
Assertion: Cathode rays consists of negatively charged particles, these are attracted towards anode (+ve terminal).
Reason: Anode rays (canal rays) consists of positively charged particles and these are attracted towards cathode
(-ve terminal).

Dear Student,
Cathode rays are clearly negatively charged particles and they are attracted towards Anode because it is positively charged particles.Hence we can say that the Reason is the correct explanation of Assertion.Hence the correct option is A.
