Saturated hydrocarbons are more stable than unsaturated hydrocarbons since they have only ____________ between them.


A
double bonds
loader
B
triple bonds
loader
C
single bonds
loader
D
ionic bond
loader

Solution

The correct option is B single bonds
Single bonds are more stable than double or triple bonds because of fewer repulsion between the electron clouds.

In the case of double or triple bonds, there are electron clouds in close proximity, which means high repulsive forces exist between them, which makes them less stable.
