Assertion (A): Ever since humans appeared on the Earth, they have used different means of communication.

Reason (R): The pace of change, has been rapid in modern times.

 

Answer:

 

Ever since humans appeared on Earth, they have used different means of communication . In today's time, Long distance communication is far easier without the physical movement of the communicator or receiver.

 

Therefore

  • Assertion(A): Ever since humans appeared on Earth, they have used different means of communication. This is true
  • Reasoning (R): The pace of change has been rapid in modern times as long-distance communication is far easier without the physical movement of the communicator or receiver. This is true
  • But, human history of using different means of communication has no relation with the rapid changes taking place in modern times that enabled long-distance communication easier.  So, the reasoning is not a correct explanation of the assertion.

Thus, 

  • Assertion is true.
  • Reasoning is true
  • But the reasoning is not a correct explanation of the assertion.  

So, the correct answer is (B)
