## Assertion(A) : The e.m.f of the cell in secondary circuit must be less than e.m.f of cell in primary circuit in potentiometer. Reason (R): Balancing length cannot be more than length of potentiometer wire.

A
Both A & R are true and R is the correct explanation of A
B
Both A & R are true and R is not a correct explanation of A
C
A is true but R is false
D
A is false but R is true
