Correct option is C)

Compressed natural gas (CNG), is made by compressing natural gas (which is mainly composed of methane, ). It is a better fuel than petrol or diesel as its combustion produces fewer undesirable gases than petrol or diesel. The cost and placement of fuel storage tanks is the major barrier to wider adoption of CNG as a fuel. CNG vehicles require a great amount of space for fuel storage than conventional gasoline powered vehicles. Laying down pipelines to deliver CNG through distribution points/pumps is another difficulty faced in switching over to CNG as an automobile fuel.
So, the correct answer is 'Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect'.
