Correct option is
C

Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect

Two thin blankets usually warmer than one thick blanket because air is trapped between them. And the air is bad conductor of heat. It does not pass the heat from our body to surrounding .
Air reduces the conductivity of heat not thickness.
Hence Assertion is correct but reason is wrong.
