Name of the compound given below is 
4 ethyl - 3 methyl octane
The correct order of reactivity towards the electrophilic substitution of the compounds aniline (I), benzene (II) and nitrobenzene (III) is
Amino group is ring activating while nitro group is deactivating. Hence, correct order is aniline > benzene > nitrobenzene.
I > II > III
–NO2 is an electron attracting group hence decrease the electron density on ring, whereas –NH2 group is electron releasing group hence increases electron density on ring. Benzene is also rich due to delocalization of electrons.

This molecule is resonance stabilised.
Which amongst the following is the most stable carbocation? 
More the number of alkyl groups, the greater the dispersal of positive charge and therefore more the stability of carbocation hence.
Which one of the following compounds is most acidic? 
Phenols are more acidic than alcohol as they are resonance stabilised whereas alcohols are not .
Further nitro is an electron withdrawing which increases acidic character and facilitates release of proton, whereas –CH3 is an electron donating group.Which decreases acidic character , thus removal of H+ becomes very difficult.
Names of some compounds are given. Which one is not correct in IUPAC system? 
Correct IUPAC name of
is 4-Ethyl-3–methyl heptane
The best method for the separation of naphthalene and benzoic acid from their mixture is: [2 00 5]
Among the given compounds naph thelene is volatile but benzoic acid is non-volatile (it forms a dimer). So, the best method for their separation is sublimation, which is applicable to compounds which can be converted directly into the vapour phase from its solid state on heating and back to the solid state on cooling. Hence it is the most appropriate method.

General molecular formula of alkanols is
The IUPAC name of 
It is 2, 3 dimethyl pentanoyl chloride.
The correct order regarding the electronegativity of hybrid orbitals of carbon is 
Among the three given hybrid orbitals, sp hybrid orbital is most electronegative.
Contribution of s in sp hybrid orbital is maximum (50%) so this orbital is closer to nucleus. Naturally it will have greater tendency to pull electron towards it. Hence it becomes more electronegative and sp3 becomes least electronegative as it have only 25% S character.
Which of the following is not chiral ? 
* marked are chiral carbons.
Consider the following compounds. 
The correct decreasing order of their reactivitytowards hydrolysis is
The degree of hydrolysis increases as the magnitude of positive charge on carbonyl group increases. Electron withdrawing group increases the positive charge and electron releasing group decreases the positive charge. Among these NO2 & CHO are electron withdrawing group from which NO2 has more –I effect than –CHO. On the other hand CH3 is a electron releasing group therefore the order of reactivity towards hydrolysis is
If there is no rotation of plane polarised light by a compound in a specific solvent, though to be chiral, it may mean that 
Compounds which do not show optical activity inspite of the presence of chiral carbon atoms are called meso-compounds.
The absence of optical activity in these compound is due to the presence of a plane of symmetry in their molecules. e.g. mesotartaric acid is optically inactive.

CH3 – CHCl – CH2 – CH3 has a chiral centre. which one of the following represents its R-configuration? 
For (i) I–, (ii) Cl–, (iii) Br–, the increasing order of nucleophilicity would be 
Nucleophilicity increases down the periodic table. I- > Br- > Cl- > F-
The order of decreasing reactivity towards an electrophilic reagent, for the following:
Benzene having any activating group i.e, OH, R etc., undergoes electrophilic substitution very easily as compared to benzene itself. Thus toluene (C6H5CH3), phenol (C6H5OH) undergo electrophilic substitution very readily than benzene.Chlorine with +E and +M effect deactivating the ring due to strong -I effect. So, it is difficult to carry out the substitution in chlorobenzene than in benzene, so correct order is
Phenol > Toluene > Benzene > Chlorobenzene

Out of the given compounds the most reactive towards nucleophilic attack
Phenoxide ion is stable due to resonance. i.e. the correct answer is option (c).
Base strength of : 
is in the order of :
The amount of s-character in various hybrid orbitals is as follows. sp = 50%, sp2 = 33% and sp3 = 25% Therefore character of the C – H bond in acetylene (sp) is greater than that of the C – H bond in alkene (sp2 hybridized) which in turn has greater s character of the C – H bond in alkanes. Thus owing to a highs character of the C – H bond in alkynes, the electrons constituting this bond are more strongly held by the carbon nucleus with the result the hydrogen present on such a carbon atom can be easily removed as proton. The acidic nature of three types of C – H bonds follows the following order ≡ C-H > = C - H > - C - H.
Further, as we know that conjugate base of a strong acid is a weak base, hence the correct order of basicity is
How many stereoisomers does this molecule have?
CH3CH = CHCH2CHBrCH3
In the molecule
the number of stereoisomers is given by sum of geometrical isomers (because of presence of C = C) and optical isomers (because of presence of chiral carbon atom).
Number of geometrical isomers = 2 (one C = C is present).
Number of optical isomers = 2 (one chiral carbon atom).
Total number of stereoisomers = 2 + 2 = 4
