Question

AssertionBorazole is more reactive than benzene.ReasonElectrophiles attack at nitrogen and not at boron atoms in inorganic benzene.(A) The Assertion is true, Reason is true and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion.(B) The Assertion is true, Reason is true and Reason is NOT the correct explanation for Assertion.(C) The Assertion is true, Reason is false.(D) The Assertion is false, Reason is true.

Hint: Polarity induces reactivity in any compound. Electrophiles are species which are electron-deficient.

Note: Benzene and borazine are both resonating structures but due to dissimilar atoms present in borazine, it has less stability. Also, each $N=B$ bond present in a borazine ring is a polar bond which further reduces stability of the entire structure and makes it more reactive.
