Question

Assertion :More energy is released in fusion than fission. Reason: More number of nucleons take part in fission.
  1. Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion.
  2. Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion.
  3. Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect.
  4. Both Assertion and Reason are incorrect.

A
Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect.
B
Both Assertion and Reason are incorrect.
C
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion.
D
Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion.
Solution
Verified by Toppr

Since energy released per mass is more in fusion as compared to fission, more energy is released in it. More number of neutrons are released in fission as compared to fusion and hence, more nucleons take part in fission.
