Arrange the following in the decreasing order: ClCH2COOH, Cl3CCOOH, CH3COOH, Cl2CHCOOH

Greater the number of electron withdrawing substituents ,greater would be the dispersal of the negative charge and hence stronger will be the acid. Hence the order of acidity is Cl3CCOOH >Cl2CHCOOH>ClCH2COOH>CH3COOH
