Solution

## The correct option is C Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrectWe know that direction of electric field is from high potential to low potential and when a proton is placed in an electric field, the electric force on proton is in the direction of electric field as proton is a positively charged particle.⇒→Fe=q→E So, Assertion is correct. And, Reason is incorrect because Electric potential is a scalar quantity given by U=KqrTherefore, C is correct option.
