**Q.**

Given below are two statements: One is labelled as Assertion A and the other is labelled as Reason R.

Assertion A: For a simple microscope, the angular size of the object equals the angular size of the image.

Reason R: Magnification is achieved as the small object can be kept much closer to the eye than $25cm$ and hence it subtends at a large angle.

In light of the above statements, choose the most appropriate answer from the options given below:

Both A and R are true but R is NOT the correct explanation of A

Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A

A is true but R is false

A is false but R is true
