Assertion (A): When Diode used as rectifier the reverse breakdown voltage should not be exceeded.

Reason (R): A high inverse voltage can destroy a p-n junction.

Both A and R are true and R is correct explanation of A
Both A and R are true but R is not a correct explanation of A
A is true but R is false

Peak inverse voltage (PIV) or peak reverse voltage (PRV) is the maximum value of reverse voltage which occurs at the peak of the input cycle when the diode is reverse-biased.
