Solution

The correct option is C A is true but R is false 
Reproduction refers to the production of progeny or offspring or daughter cell, possessing features more or less similar to those of parents. But, reproduction cannot be an all-inclusive defining characteristic of living organisms beacuse there are organisms like mules, worker bees and infertile human couples which are unable to reproduce. 

Non-living organisms cannot reproduce. Hence, assertion is true while reason is false.
