(b) If both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not a correct explanation of the Assertion.

Explanation:

Ozone is a powerful oxidising agent because it is unstable and breaks into oxygen as it has higher energy content than oxygen.

O3 → O2 + O

It is also true that O3 is diamagnetic, while O2 is paramagnetic.
