Getting ready for the UGC-NET exam or any other exam in Journalism and Mass Communication can be challenging. But with JMC Study Hub, it doesn't have to be! We know that aspirants sometimes find it hard to understand the concepts, so we’re here to help. In this blog post, explanations of the questions will give a better understanding.

Q. Given below are two statements: one is labelled as Assertion A and the other is labelled as Reason R

Assertion A: Digital Media technologies can be seen as being socially shaped prior to use

Reason R:  The popularization of a technology in commercial societies implies design motivated by profit

In the light of the above statements, choose the most appropriate answer from the options given below:

1. Both A and R are correct and R is the correct explanation A

2. Both A and R are correct and R is NOT the correct explanation A

3. A is correct but R is not correct.

4. A is not correct but R I s correct.

Correct Ans: (2)

Explanation: Both Assertion A and Reason R are correct. Assertion A states that digital media technologies are socially shaped prior to their use, meaning they are influenced by social factors during their development. Reason R indicates that the popularization of technology in commercial societies is motivated by profit. However, while the profit motive is a significant factor, it does not fully explain the broader concept of social shaping. Therefore, Reason R supports but does not completely explain Assertion A. Thus, the correct answer is 2: Both A and R are correct and R is NOT the correct explanation of A.
