Given below are two statements:

 Assertion (A): In Young's double-slit experiment the two slits are at a distance d apart. The interference pattern is observed on a screen at a distance D from the slits and a dark fringe is observed. The wavelength of the wave is proportional to the square of the distance between two slits. Reason (R): For a dark fringe, intensity is zero.

 1 Both (A) and (R) are true and (R) is the correct explanation of (A). 2 Both (A) and (R) are true but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A). 3 (A) is true but (R) is false. 4 Both (A) and (R) are false.
