Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect

D
Assertion is incorrect and Reason is correct

Solution

The correct option is D Assertion is incorrect and Reason is correct
The gravitational field is conservative field.
So the energy required (kinetic) to get an object from earth surface to infinity is path independent.
This makes escape velocity independent of angle of projection.
So assertion is incorrect and reason is correct.
