The correct option is A Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion
Fluorine acts as a stronger oxidizing agent than oxygen because it is more electronegative than oxygen. So it can easily attract electrons and get reduced. Thus, oxygen is a strong reducing agent than fluorine.

Hence, both the Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion.
