    The correct order of catenation is : [JEE Main 10-4-2019 Morning]

    A) \[C>Si>Ge\approx Sn\]        

    B) \[C>Sn>Si\approx Ge\]

    C) \[Ge>Sn>Si>C\]

    D)   \[Si>Sn>C>Ge\]

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    As we move down the group, bond strength decreases, thereby decreasing the catenation tendency. Hence the order is as expected \[C>Si>Ge\approx Sn\]
