Question

The property of halogens which is not correctly matched is:


A
F>Cl>Br>I (Ionisation energy)
loader
B
F>Cl>Br>I (Electronegativity)
loader
C
I>Br>Cl>F (Density)
loader
D
F>Cl>Br>I (Electron affinity)
loader

Solution

The correct option is D F>Cl>Br>I (Electron affinity)
$$e^-$$ affinity of $$F$$ is less than that of $$Cl$$ because of the small size and high electronegativity of $$F$$ it repels the incoming $$e^-$$ thereby decreasing its $$e^-$$ affinity whereas $$Cl$$ having bigger size than $$F$$ & can accommodate the new incoming extra $$e^-$$.
