Given below are two statements: one is labelled as Assertion (A) and the other is labelled as Reason (R).

Assertion (A): Mendel's law of Independent assortment does not hold good for the genes that are located closely on the same chromosome.
Reason (R): Closely located genes assort independently.

 
In the light of the above statements, choose the correct answer from the options given below:

1. (A) is false, (R) is true.
2. Both (A) and (R) are true and (R) correctly explains (A).
3. Both (A) and (R) are false and (R) does not correctly explain (A).
4. (A) is true, (R) is false.
