Solution

The correct option is A

[A] is false and [R] is true


The size of the uterus, by virtue of its elasticity, changes depending on whether a woman has had a child or not. The uterus of a nulliparous woman (that is a woman who has not had children) is smallest, being around 8 cm long, 5 cm wide and 2 cm thick. Women who have had two or more children - multiparous women - have uteruses which are usually slightly larger.
