    A)          

    B)  

    C)  

    D)  

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

     Phenol has activating (electron releasing) \[-\text{OH}\]group and bromine water supplies \[\text{B}{{\text{r}}^{+}}\]ion easily, hence under such conditions reaction does not stop at monobromo or dibromo stage but a fully brominated (2,4,6,-tribromophenol) compound is the final product.
