Illustration 1:          The set with correct order of acidity is

                              (A)  HClO < HClO2 < HClO3 < HClO4 (B)  HClO4 < HClO3 < HClO2 < HClO

                              (C)  HClO <HClO4 < HClO2 < HClO3  (D)  HClO4 <HClO2 < HClO3 <HClO

Solution:              Higher the oxidation states of the central atom, higher the acidic character.

                              \ (A)

Illustration 2:          The correct order of basicities of the following compound is


                              (A)  II > I > III > IV                           (B)  I > III > II > IV

                              (C)  III > I > II > IV                           (D)  I >II > III > IV


The negative charge developed on N makes it more basic. 2° amine is more basic than that 1° amine. In amide, lone pair of electron of N-atom is involved in resonance. So, it is least basic

Illustration 3:          Which of the following is the correct order of basic nature of the compounds


                              (A)  I > II > III > IV > V                     (B)  I < II < III < IV < V

                              (C)  I > II >III > V > IV                      (D)  I > II > IV > III > V

Solution:              V is least basic, due to resonance of lp of electrons, structure IV is less stbale than that of structure I, II and III due % of s-character of carbon. But from structure I, II and III, higher the electronegative atom attached, lower the basicity of the compound

                              \ (A)

Illustration 4:          Arrange the following in decreasing order of basic character.

Solution:              Due to resonance structure I will be least basic, but structure II will be less basic than III, because in structure II, phenyl group is electron withdrawing group, where as in structure III, cyclohexyl group is an electron donating group.

                              \ (A)
