Assertion

The flow of fluid is said to be steady if at any given point, the velocity of each passing fluid particle remains constant.

Reason

The path taken by a fluid particle under a steady flow is a streamline.

A

Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion

B

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

C

Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect

D

Both Assertion and Reason are incorrect
