Solution

The correct option is C Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect
2,3-Dimethylbut-2-ene is more stable than but-2-ene.
Twelve hyper-conjugation structures can be written for 2,3-dimethylbut-2-ene while but-2-ene has six. More is the number of methyl groups attached to doubly bonded C atom, greater is the number of hyper-conjugation structures. Greater is the number of hyper-conjugation structures, greater is the stability of alkene. Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect.
