Expert Answer:

O-nitrophenol has intramolecular Hydrogen bonding. When it is dissolved in water it is less because it does not form intermolecular  hydrogen bond with water.
m-nitrophenol and p-nitrophenol forms intermolecular Hydrogen bond with water so it is more soluble. So Assertion is correct.
 
Reason- m and p nitro phenol exists as associated molecule due to their intermolecular hydrogen bonding.
 
So Assertion and Reason both are true but reason is not explanation of Assertion.
