Assertion: On going away from a point charge or a small electric dipole, electric field decreases at the same rate in both the cases.

Reason: Electric field is inversely proportional to square of distance from the charge or on electric dipole.

• If assertion is true but reason is false.

• if both assertion and reason are false.
