Question

The formula for the members of homologous series beginning with acetone $$(CH_3COCH_3)$$ is:


A
CH3COCH2CH3
loader
B
CH3CH(OH)CH3
loader
C
CH3OCH3
loader
D
CH3CH2OCH3
loader

Solution

The correct option is A $$CH_3-CO-CH_2-CH_3 $$
The given compound is a starting member of the ketone family.

$$CH_3COCH_3$$

The homologous series of the given compound is following: 

i.$$CH_3−CO−CH_2CH_3$$ (Butan-2-one)

ii. $$CH_3−CO−CH_2CH_2CH_3$$ (Pentan-2-one)

iii. $$CH_3COC_4H_9$$ (Hexan-2-one)

iv. $$CH_3COC_5H_{11}$$ (Heptan-2-one)

Hence, the correct option is A.
