**Assertion**

# Length of the common chord of the parabola $y_{2}=8x$ and the circle $x_{2}+y_{2}=9$ is less than the length of the latus rectum of the parabola.

**Reason**

# If the vertex of a parabola lies at the point $(a,0)$ and the directrix is $x+a=0$, then the focus of the parabola is at the point $(2a,0)$.
