Assertion :(Ref image) is 3-methyl butanoic acid. Reason: In poly function group, the substituent should be given lower number than the principal functional group.
Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion
Both Assertion and Reason are correct but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion
Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect
Both Assertion and Reason are incorrect
The correct option is C Assertion is correct but Reason is incorrect As, the functional group is $$-COOH$$, the numbering is done from RHS to give minimum number to carbon atom bearing the functional group. Rewriting the above structure. The chain consists of four carbon atoms. Hence its a derivative of butane.
The substituent is the methyl group. So the above compound is $$3-$$ methyl butanoic acid.
