Solution

The correct option is B

It is usually sensitive to change in solvent polarity


A free-radical reaction is any chemical reaction involving free radicals.

The major product is based on the most stable free radical.
These reactions usually involve 3 major steps: chain initiation, chain propagation and chain termination.
These are usually initiated by U.V light or other light sources which have enough energy to initiate the reaction.
