Anti-aromatic compounds are more stable than aromatic compounds.
loader
B
Anti-aromatic compounds have more electrons in bonding molecular orbitals.

C
Aromatic compounds have more electrons in bonding molecular orbitals.

D
Non-aromatic compounds are more stable than anti-aromatic compounds.

Solution

The correct options are
C Aromatic compounds have more electrons in bonding molecular orbitals.
D Non-aromatic compounds are more stable than anti-aromatic compounds.
Stability order :
Aromatic> Non-aromatic>Anti-Aromatic
Anti-aromatic compounds have more electrons in antibonding molecular orbitals.
So, energy increases and stability decreases.
Aromatic compounds have more electrons in bonding molecular orbitals.
So, energy decreases and stability increases.
