Assertion : Scientist prefer metric system of units.
Reason : In metric system, there are factors of 10 which are easier to remember.
(1) Both assertion and reason are true. (2) Both assertion and reason are false. (3) Assertion is true, reason is false. (4) Assertion is false, reason is true.

Both assertion and reason are true.

The metric system is based upon powers of ten. It is convenient because a measurement in the metric system that is represented by a rational number remains a rational number after metric unit conversion.

For example, 250 mm = 25 cm = .25 m

In contrast other unit systems like English system, do not have the same property

For example, 250 inches = 20.8333... ft = 0.0039457... mile

So, scientists prefer metric system
