Direction (Q. No. 20- 24) In each of the following questions, a statement of Assertion is given by the corresponding statement of Reason. Of the statements, mark the correct answer as

(a) If both Assertion and Reason are true and Reason is the correct explanation of Assertion.

(b) If both Assertion and Reason are true, but Reason is not the correct explanation of Assertion.

(c) If Assertion is true, but Reason is false.

(d) If Assertion is false, but Reason is true.

Q20. Assertion: The connecting wires are made of copper.

            Reason: The electrical conductivity of copper is high.

Q21. Assertion: Resistors connected in series are more effective than those connected in parallel.

            Reason: Resistance of resistors increase when connected in series.
