Assertion (A): In the case of short run cost behavior, MC curve intersects AC curve at its minimum

Reason (R): While Ac continues to decrease, MC begins to rise. Also, when AC is at its minium, it is neither increasing nor decreasing. It is constant when AC is constant, it is equal to MC at the point of intersection
