Solution

## The correct option is A Both (A) and (R) are true and (R) is the correct explanation of (A) Electric field is zero inside a charged conductor. For a charged conductor, the charges will lie on the surface of the conductor.So, there will not be any charges inside the conductor. When there is no charge there will not be electric field. <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> Hence, (A) is the correct answer.
