##### ASSERTION

In the falling object example, if you include the effect of air resistance during the fall and see the situation after the object hits the ground and stays there, the total mechanical energy is not conserved.

##### REASON

The general law of energy conservation, however, is still applicable but the total mechanical energy is not conserved

Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion

##### SOLUTION
Let us consider the falling object example , While it is falling , there will be gravitational force acting on it and the mechanical energy is conserved.
If we include the effect of air resistance during the fall and see the simulation after the object hits the ground and stays there , the total mechanical energy is not conserved.
The general law of energy conservation is applicable but the mechanical energy is not conserved
Therefore correct option is $A$

You're just one step away
