Dear student

Due to high potential barrier

This is because in case of reverse bias, p side has lots of -ve ions & n side has +ve ions vice verss. This increase in the number of ions prevents current flow across the junction by majority carriers. eg. electrons can't complete the loop as they experience resistance of -ve ions on the p side.
