In the following question a statement of Assertion (A) followed by a statement of Reason (R) is given. Choose the correct option out of the choices given below each question.
Assertion (A) : Sodium chloride formed by the action of chlorine gas on sodium metal is a stable compound.
Reason (R) : This is because sodium and chloride ions acquire octet in sodium chloride formation.
(i) A and R both are correct, and R is the correct explanation of A.
(ii) A and R both are correct, but R is not the correct explanation of A.
(iii) A is true but R is false.
(iv) A and R both are false.
The sodium chloride is a stable compound. It has an ionic bond. The sodium metal donates one electron and chlorine accepts one to complete its octet.
Thus, both the assertion and the reason are correct and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.
