# Given the Assertion and Reason below, Choose one of the following responses $\begin{array}{1 1}\text{Assertion:The dark reaction occurs at night in the stroma of chloroplast.}\\\text{Reason:Stomata are not present in submerged plants.}\end{array}$

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;\text{Both assertion and reason are true and the reason is a correct explanation of the assertion}\\(B)\;\text{Both assertion and reason are true but reason is not a correct explanation of the assertion}\\(C)\;\text{Assertion is true but the reason is false}\\(D)\;\text{Both assertion and reason are false}\end{array}$

Both assertion and reason are false. Dark reactions do not occur in dark . They are light independent but need the products of light reaction namely ATP" role="presentation" style="position: relative;">ATPATPATP and NADPH2." role="presentation" style="position: relative;">NADPH2.NADPH2.NADPH_2.
Hence (D) is the correct answer.
