Correct option is A)

Newton corpuscular theory treats light as composed of particles . Reflection and refraction of light can be explained through particle nature of light.
Huygens wave theory treats light as a wave. Interference and diffraction are best explained by the wave nature of light.
Hence, both A and B are True statements.
