Which of the following compounds will exhibit cis-trans (geometrical) isomerism? 
Alkenes with double bonds cannot undergo free rotation and can have different geometrical shapes with two different groups on each end of the double bond.
Given are cycloh exanol (I) a cetic acid (II), 2, 4, 6 – trinitrophenol (III) and phenol (IV). In these the order of decreasing acidic character will be :
Explanation: Presence of three — NO2 groups in o–, p– positions to phenolic groups (in III) makes phenol strongly acidic because its corresponding phenolate ion (conjugate base) is highly stabilized due to resonance.
Conjugate base of CH3COOH, (II) (i.e.CH3COO-) is a resonance hybrid of two equivalent structures.
The conjugate base of phenol, (IV) is stabilized due to resonance note that here all resonating structures are not equivalent).
The conjugate base of cyclohexanol, (I) does not exhibit resonance, hence not formed.
Hence A is the correct answer.
The correct order of increasing reactivity of C – X bond towards nucleophile in the following compounds is: 
(I) (II) (III) (IV)
Tertiary alkyl halide is most reactive towards nucleophilic substitution because the corresponding carbocation (3°) is most stable. Aryl halide is least reactive due to partial double bond character of the C – Cl bond.
Presence of — NO2 groups in ortho and para positions increases the reactivity of the – Cl towards nucleophiles.
Among the given compounds , the most susceptible to nucleophilic attack at the carbonyl group is: 
Cl– is the weakest base and hence better leaving group
Which one is most reactive towards electrophilic reagent? 
Due to +M+M effect of −OH-OH group and hyperconjugation of −CH3-CH3 group.
In the following the most stable conformation of n-butane is: 
The bulky methyl groups are maximum away from each other.
Which of the following conformers for ethylene glycol is most stable? 
Due to hydrogen bonding between the two OH groups, gauche conformation of ethylene glycol (a) is the most stable conformation.
Which of the following species is not electrophilic in nature? 
has a lone pair of electrons on oxygen atom, thus not an electrophile. Also octet is complete.
Which one of the following is most reactive towards electrophilic reagent ? 
Due to +M effect of –OH group and hyperconjugation of –CH3 group.
Both methyl and hydroxyl groups are electron releasing groups hence +I effect increases. Therefore B will be most reactive in an electrophilic reaction.
Hence B is correct.
The correct IUPAC name of the compound
The given compound is
4 ethyl, 3 propyl hex – 1 – ene
The correct order of increasing bond length of C – H, C – O, C – C and C = C is : 
Bond length order is
Which one is a nucleophilic substitution reaction among the following ? 
Because of high electronegativities of the halogen atom, the carbon halogen (C – X) is highly polarised covalent bond. Thus, the carbon atom of the C – X bond becomes a good site for attack by nucleophiles (electron rich species). Nucleophilic substitution reactions are the most common reactions of alkyl halides.
Which of the following compounds undergoes nucleophilic substitution reaction most easily ?
In SNAr reactions, a carbanion is formed as an intermediate, so any substituent that increases the stability of carbanion and hence the transition state leading to its formation will enhance the SNAr reactions. To compare the rates of substitution in chlorobenzene, chlorobenzene having electron-withdrawing group, and chlorobenzene having electronreleasing group, we compare the structures carbanion I (from chlorobenzene), II (from chlorobenzene containing electron-withdrawing group) and III (from chlorobenzene containing electron-releasing group).
G withdraws electrons, neutralises (disperses) –ve charge of the ring, stabilises carbanion, facilitates SN reaction (activation effect)
G releases electrons, intensifies –ve charge, destabilizes carbanion, retards SN reaction (deactivation) NO2 is activating group and CH3 and OCH3 are deactiving group.
Hence, the correct order of nucleophilic substitution reactions
The IUPAC name of the following compound is
Correct IUPAC name of above compound is trans-2-chloro-3-iodo-2-pentene
