Solution

The correct option is A Both A and R are true, and R is the correct explanation of A.
Mikhail Gorbachev brought a liberal mindset to the table after being elected as PM. He added policies like  'Glasnost', which insisted on transparency in government institutions and activities in the Soviet Union. 'Perestroika', on the other hand, was instituted to adopt liberal economics for the Soviet Union. Both the policies diluted the hold of the single-handed communist rule in the Soviet Union.
