Question

# Assertion :Benzene does not have true single and double bonds between its carbon atoms in the ring Reason: It is composed of delocalized pi electrons in the ring giving rise to resonance structures

A
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion
B
Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion
C
Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect
D
Both Assertion and Reason are incorrect

Solution

## The correct option is A Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for AssertionBenzene does not have true single and double bonds between its carbon atoms in the ring, as the molecule is planar i.e all the carbon atoms show $$SP^2$$ hybridization, and all the 6 pi electrons are delocalized in the ring exhibiting resonance.Chemistry
