Direction (Q No. 25-29)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.

(e) If Assertion and Reason both are false.

Q25. Assertion: A current-carrying conductor experiences a force in a magnetic field.

Reason: The force acting on a current-carrying conductor in a magnetic field is due to interaction between magnetic field produced by the current-carrying conductor and external magnetic field in which the conductor is placed.

Q26. Assertion: Electric Motor converts Electric Energy into mechanical Energy.

Reason: Electric motor is based on the principle of Flemings right-hand rule.

Q27. Assertion: Magnetic field lines do not intersect each other.

Reason: There cannot to two direction of the magnetic field at a point.

Q28. Assertion: The principle of Electromagnetic Induction was discovered by Michael Faraday.

Reason: The principle is used only in DC generators.

Q29. Assertion: Magnetic field can be created using a solenoid.

Reason: The strength of the magnetic field will depend on the number of turns of the solenoid.
