    Assertion: Aniline is better nucleophile than an ilium ion.
    Reason: An ilium ion have +ve charge. [AIIMS 1996]
    Read the assertion and reason carefully to mark the correct option out of the options given below:

    A) If both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion. [a] It is fact that aniline is better nucleophile than anilium ion. Anilium ion contain +ve charge, which reduces the tendency to donate lone pair of electron\[\underset{\text{Anilium ion}}{\mathop{{{C}_{6}}{{H}_{5}}NH_{3}^{+}}}\,\]. Therefore, both assertion and reason are true.

    B) If both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of the assertion.

    C) If assertion is true but reason is false.

    D) If the assertion and reason both are false.

    E) If assertion is false but reason is true.

    Assertion: Tertiary carbonium ions are generally formed more easily than primary carbonium ions.
    Reason: Hyperconjugative as well as inductive effect due to additional alkyl groups stabilize tertiary carbonium ions.
    Read the assertion and reason carefully to mark the correct option out of the options given below:

    A) If both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion. [a] An alkyl group attached to the positively charged carbon of a carbonium ion tends to release electrons towards that carbon; thus the positive charges gets dispersed as the alkyl group becomes somewhat positively charged itself. More the number of alkyl groups, the greater is the dispersal of positive charge and therefore more easily it will be formed.

    Assertion: Each carbon in ethylene molecule is \[s{{p}^{2}}\] hybridised.
    Reason: The \[H-C-H\] bond angle in ethylene molecule is 120?.
    Read the assertion and reason carefully to mark the correct option out of the options given below:

    A) If both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.

    B) If both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of the assertion. [b] Each carbon atom in ethylene is attached to two hydrogen atoms by single covalent bonds and to another carbon atoms by a double bond. Since each carbon is attached to three other atoms, it uses \[s{{p}^{2}}\] hybrid orbitals and an unhybridised \[{{p}_{Z}}\] orbital to form its bond. Each \[C-H\] bond is a \[\sigma \] bond resulting from the overlap of \[1s\] orbital of hydrogen atom and \[s{{p}^{2}}\] orbital of a carbon atom. One \[C-C\] bond results from the linear overlap of \[s{{p}^{2}}\] orbitals one from each carbon atom. One \[\pi \]bond results from the lateral overlap of two unhybridised \[{{p}_{Z}}\] orbitals, one from each carbon atom.

    C) If assertion is true but reason is false.

    Assertion: Staggered form is less stable than the eclipsed form.
    Reason: The conformation in which the bond pairs of two central atoms are very far from one another is called staggered form.
    Read the assertion and reason carefully to mark the correct option out of the options given below:

    A) If both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.

    B) If both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of the assertion.

    C) If assertion is true but reason is false.

    D) If the assertion and reason both are false.

    E) If assertion is false but reason is true. [e] The staggered form is more stable than the eclipsed form because the potential energy of staggered form in which the bond pairs of two carbons are far away from each other is minimum. Also the H-atoms are as far apart as possible and non-bonded interaction between them is maximum. In occupied form, the H-atom are very close and so the increased overlap between them non-bonded orbitals is repulsive. That is why staggered form is more stable than eclipsed form.

    A) If both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of the assertion.

    B) If both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of the assertion. [b] Trans isomer is more stable than cis isomer because in cis isomer, the bulky groups are on the same side of the double bond. The steric repulsion of the groups makes the cis isomer less stable than the trans isomer in which the bulky groups are far apart. (They are on the opposite side of the double bond).
