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
