We have provided here assertion reason questions for class 10 Science Board exams. You can read these chapter-wise assertion reason questions for your Final Science paper. These questions are prepared by subject experts and experienced teachers. The answer key is also provided so that you can check the correct answer for each question. Practice these questions to score well in your Final Board exams.
An assertion reason type question consists of two statements; an assertion (statement of fact) and a reason (explanation for the given assertion). First, you have to determine whether each statement is correct or not.
