Assertion (A): Carbon dioxide turns lime water milky.  

Reason (R): Carbon dioxide sullies the water. 

 

Directions: In the following questions, a statement  of assertion (A) is followed by a statement of  reason (R). Mark the correct choice as:   

(a) Both assertion (A) and reason (R) are true and  reason (R) is the correct explanation of assertion  (A).  

(b) Both assertion (A) and reason (R) are true but  reason (R) is not the correct explanation of  assertion (A).  

(c) Assertion (A) is true but reason (R) is false.  

(d) Assertion (A) is false but reason (R) is true.
