Question:

Assertion (A): Gases do not liquefy above their critical temperature, even

on applying high pressure.

Reason (R): Above the critical temperature, the molecular speed is high and

intermolecular attractions cannot hold the molecules together

because they escape because of high speed.

(ii) Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A.
