Question

Regarding the assertion and reason, choose the correct option.
Assertion [A]: The beta cells secrete insulin and alpha cells secrete glucagon.
Reason [R]: Insulin increases the blood sugar level and glucagon decreases it.


  1. Both assertion and reason are correct and reason is the correct explanation

  2. Assertion is correct but reason is wrong

  3. Both assertion and reason are wrong

  4. Both assertion and reason are correct but reason is not the correct explanation


Solution

The correct option is B

Assertion is correct but reason is wrong


When glucose in the blood increases, the beta cells produce insulin. Insulin converts glucose to glycogen in the liver and muscles. In the same way, when there is a decrease in the level of glucose in the blood, glucagon uses the glycogen stored in the liver and the muscles and converts it into glucose to be used by the body. Glucagon is secreted by alpha cells.
