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

Assertion (A): At different levels of any  government we find functionaries. All those functionaries are collectively known as the  executive.

Reason (R): They are called executive because they are in charge of the ‘execution’ of the  policies of the government. 

Options:  

(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. 

 

Answer:

So, the correct answer is (a)

Explanation:

  • Functionaries make daily decisions at various levels of any government , yet they do not act in the people's best interests.

  • The executive is the aggregate term for all of these employees. This executive is in charge of the ‘execution’ of the policies of the government. 

  •  As a result, when we refer to " the government," we typically mean the executive.

Let’s Check

  • Assertion (A): At different levels of any government, we find functionaries. All those  functionaries are collectively known as the executive. This is true.

  • Reasoning (R): They are called executive because they are in charge of the ‘execution’ of the policies of the government. This is true.

  • Executives are in charge of making policies and those executives are present at different levels of government. So, reasoning is the correct explanation for the assertion

So,

  • Assertion is true
  • Reasoning is true
  • Reasoning is the correct explanation for the assertion

Thus, the correct answer is (a).
