Question

# Assertion :When an electric current is passed through an aqueous solution of sodium chloride, sodium ions move towards cathode and chloride ions move towards anode. Reason: Cathode is a negatively charged electrode and therefore attracts $$NA+ ions$$. Anode is a positively charged electrode and therefore attracts $$Cl-$$ ions

A
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion
B
Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion
C
Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect
D
Assertion is incorrect but Reason is correct

Solution

## The correct option is C Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrectWhen an electric current is passed through an aqueous solution of sodium chloride, sodium ions move towards the cathode and chloride ions move towards the anode.The cathode is a negatively charged electrode and therefore attracts $$Na^+$$ ions, Anode is a positively charged electrode and therefore attracts $$Cl^-$$ ions. Chemistry
