Solution

The correct option is C Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect
  • It is true that chromosomes occur in pairs. These are called homologous chromosomes. They contain genes that are located on homologous sites.
  • During the process of meiosis, these chromosomes get segregated and get independently assorted. 
  • But the alleles that are not located on nonhomologous chromosomes, they are present only on homologous chromosomes.
So, option C is the correct answer.
