Solution

The correct option is C Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect
in SHM
v=ωA2x2
If we move away from mean position, x increases, so v will decrease. So the assertion is true.
and the reason is incorrect since in SHM, the acceleration is always opposite to the displacement of the particle, not always opposite to the velocity of the particle.
So the correct choice is 'C'.
