Solution

The correct option is A Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A.
Delay in decision-making is one of the demerits of democracy. For instance, India took seventeen years to implement the uniform tax system throughout the country. In a democracy, the government is accountable to people. Hence, citizens or their representatives must have a say in all the decisions taken by the government. This process, although time consuming, is one of the reasons democracy can be said to be the rule of the masses.
