Question

# $$I.\ \overset{\ominus}CH_2-\overset{\oplus}CH-CH=CH-O-CH_3$$$$II.\ \overset{\ominus}CH_2-CH=CH-\overset{\oplus}CH-O-CH_3$$$$III.\ CH_2=CH-\overset{\ominus}CH-\overset{\oplus}CH-O-CH_3$$$$IV.\ CH_2=CH-\overset{\ominus}CH-CH=\overset{\oplus}O-CH_3$$$$CH_{2}=CH-CH=CH-O-CH_{3}$$ has the following above resonating structures. The correct order of stability of these resonating structures is:

A
IV>III>II>I
B
III>IV>II>I
C
III>II>I>IV
D
IV>I>III>II

Solution

## The correct option is C $$IV > I > III > II$$$$IV > I > III > II$$$$CH_2=CH-\overset{\ominus}{C}H-CH=\overset{\oplus }{O}-CH_3 > \overset{\ominus}CH_2-\overset{\oplus }CH-CH=CH-O-CH_3$$                         $$IV$$                                                                       $$I$$$$> CH_2=CH-\overset{\ominus}{C}H-\overset{\oplus}{C}H-O-CH_3 > \overset{\ominus}{C}H_2-CH = CH - \overset{\oplus}{C}H - O - CH_3$$                            $$III$$                                                                  $$II$$The structure is unstable when opposite charges are present on adjacent atoms.Structure having maximum number of covalent bonds is most stable. - $$OCH_3$$ exerts a $$- I$$ and $$+M$$ effect.Also in structure IV, octet of all atoms are complete but in others octet of one carbon is incomplete. Chemistry
