Question:-
Assertion (A) : In the solution of transportation problem, for application optimality test, the number of allocations required is m + n - 1 and these should be in independent positions.
Reason (R) : If the number of allocations is not m + n - 1, values of all oddments, i.e. ui and vj cannot be found.
Option (A)
Both A and R are individually true and R is the correct explanation of A
Option (B)
Both A and R are individually true but R is not the correct explanation of A
Option(C)
A is true but R is false
Option(D)
A is false but R is true
Correct Option:
(A)
Question Solution:
Optimality test can be conducted to any initial basic feasible solution of a TP provided such allocations has exactly m + n – 1 non-negative allocation. Where m is the number of origins and n is the number of destination. Also these allocation must be in independent positions.
