Question

Assertion (A): The workers were paid very high wages as a reward for working for long hours. 
Reason (R): Employees were willing to work as long as they received high wages.  

 
  1. A is false but R is true.
  2. Both A and R are false. 
  3. Both A and R are true.
  4. A is true but R is false.


Solution

The correct option is B Both A and R are false. 
During the Industrial Revolution in Britain, availability of workers greatly exceeded the demand for workers. Thus, the employers were free to set a wage of their choice as people were willing to work as long as they were paid. They set their wages as low as possible. Despite low wages, people worked for long hours as they had no assurance of employment.
