Assertion : Presence of a nitro group at ortho or para position increases the reactivity of haloarenes towards nucleophilic substitution.
Reason : Nitro group, being an electron withdrawing group decreases the electron density over the benzene ring.
Nitro Group present on ortho and para position of haloarenes act as an electron-withdrawing group and thus there are the deficiency of electrons makes it more reactive towards nucleophilic substitution reaction.
