Correct option is
B

Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion

Correct reason is that air is a gas and its molecules are far apart from each other. So, this is not a good condition for conduction. Also, air being a non-metal, doesn't have free electrons for conduction.
