Assertion (A): Transparency means openness, communication and accountability of the government.

Reason (R): Transparency is considered mission in a Democratic Government.



So, the correct answer is (c)


A citizen who wants to know if a decision was taken through the correct procedure can find this out. One has the right and the means to examine the process of decision-making. This is known as transparency.

Let’s check

  • Assertion: Transparency means openness,  communication and accountability of the  government. This is true.

  • Reason:  Transparency is considered mission in a Democratic Government. This is False because transparency is only a part of what an ideal democratic government should be . Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing . Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset.


  • Assertion is true
  • Reasoning is false

Thus, the correct answer is (c).
