Question

Assertion :When a charge is brought near a conductor then a very small value current is established in the conductor. Reason: Since electric field inside the conductor has to be zero so to overcome the electric field of the external charge, internal charge of conductor is collected all accross the surface.

A
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion

Solution

The correct option is A Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for AssertionWhen a charge is brought near the conductor, induced charges are produced on the conductor. But since electric field inside the conductor has to be zero so to overcome the electric field of induced charges, the internal free charges of conductor are collected across its surface. So a very small current is established in a conductor. So, both assertion and reason are correct and reason is correct explanation for assertion.
