Question

Of the given anions, the strongest Bronsted base is:


A
ClO
loader
B
ClO2
loader
C
ClO3
loader
D
ClO4
loader

Solution

The correct option is C $$ClO^{\circleddash}$$
The Bronsted base is the substance that can accept  $$H^+$$.
$$Oxidation\ state\ of\ the\ central\ atom\ \uparrow, Acidity \uparrow$$

Thus the order of acidic strength of the conjugate acid would be:
$$HClO< HCl{ O }_2 < HCl{ O }_3 < HCl{ O }_4$$
Weaker the conjugate acid stronger the conjugate base.
In the given conjugate bases the order of base strength is :

$$ClO^-> Cl{ O }_2^-> Cl{ O }_3^->Cl{ O }_4^-$$
Hence, the correct option is A.
