Question: 48

By mistake, an alcohol (boiling point ) was mixed with a hydrocarbon (boiling point ) . Suggest a suitable method to separate the two compounds. Explain the reason for your choice.


Simple distillation can be used because the two compounds have a difference of more than in their boiling points and both the liquids can be distilled without any decomposition.

Question: 49

Which of the two structures (A) and (B) given below is more stabilized by resonance? Explain.


Resonating structures are as follows:


Resonating Structures


Resonating Structures
Resonating Structures

Structure ‘B’ is more stabilized as it does not involve charge separation.

IV. Matching Type

In the following questions more than one correlation is possible between options of Column I and Column II. Make as many correlations as you can.
