Determine the correctness or otherwise of the following Assertion [$a$] and the Reason [$r$] regarding mammalian cells.

Assertion [$a$]: Cells use $Ca^{2+}$, and not $Na^{+}$, for cell-to-cell signaling

Reason [$r$]: $n$ the cytosol, concentration of $Na^{+}$ is lower than that of $Ca^{2+}$

  1. Both [$a$] and [$r$] are true and [r] is the correct reason for [$a$].
  2. Both [$a$] and [$r$]  are true but [$r$] is not the correct reason for [$a$].
  3. Both [$a$] and [$r$]  are false.
  4. [$a$] is true but [$r$] is false.

To facilitate mass transfer from a gas to a liquid phase, a gas bubble of radius $r$ is introduced into the liquid. The gas bubble then breaks into $8$ bubbles of equal radius. Upon this change, the ratio of the interfacial surface area to the gas phase volume for the system changes from $3/r$ to $3n/r$. The value of $n$ is _____________________.
