How can a nuclear reactor contain many critical masses and not go supercritical? What methods are used to control the fission in the reactor?

To determine

The phenomenon by which nuclear reactor contains many critical masses but never go supercritical. Also, state the method used to control the nuclear fission reaction in the reactor.

Explanation

Introduction:

Nuclear reactor work on nuclear fission reaction but in controlled manner. So that the heat produce is utilized, and the product cannot destruct the environment.Nuclear fission reaction is controlled by control the amount of neutron to strike the fusible element.

When neutron fuses with the radioactive element and the result have neutron produced again which explode with the radio...
