The following item consists of two statements, one labelled as the ‘Assertion (A)’ and the other as ‘Reason (R)’. You are to examine these two statements carefully and select the answers to these items using the codes given below: Codes: Assertion: The mean of x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x7, x8 and x9 which are in an arithmetic progression is x5. Reason: Mean is always the middle-most observation if the data are in an arithmetic progression.
A is false but R is true
A is true but R is false
Both A and R are individually true but R is not correct explanation of A.
Both A and R are individually true and R is the correct explanation of A.

A is true, R is false
Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A.
Both A and R true and R is the correct explanation of A.
/

A is true, R is false
Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A.
Both A and R true and R is the correct explanation of A.
