In the questions given below, there are two  statements marked as Assertion (A) and Reason  (R). Read the statements and chose the correct  option:  

Assertion (A): Production increased rapidly due  to Stalin’s Collectivization Programme.  

Reason (R): There was bad harvest during 1930-  1933. 

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

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

(c) A is correct but R is wrong.  

(d) A is wrong but R is correct. 



So, the correct option is (d) - (A) is wrong but (R) is correct.


  • Assertion (A): Production increased rapidly due to Stalin’s Collectivization Programme which is not correct because, despite collectivisation, production did not increase immediately. So, assertion (A) is wrong.
  • Reason (R): There was a bad harvest during 1930-1933 which is correct because the bad harvests of 1930-1933 led to one of the most devastating famines in Soviet history when over 4 million died. Thus, Reasoning (R) is correct .



  • Assertion is false.
  • Reasoning is true.

So the correct answer is (d).
