Solution

The correct option is C Both assertion and reason are true.

The maximum number of electrons that can be accommodated in any shell according to Bohr and Bury is 2n2 where n is the shell number.

Shell Maximum no. of electrons
K, n=1 2 × 12 = 2
L, n=2 2 × 22 = 8
M, n=3 2 × 32 = 18
N, n=4 2 × 42= 32

Hence, both assertion and reason are correct.
