# Rank the alkenes given below in terms of their relative stability starting with the most stable?

$\begin{array}{1 1}a)\; D > A > C > B\\b)\; B > C > A > D\\c)\; D > C > A > B\\d)\; C > A > D > B\end{array}$

The more substituted alkenes are more stable. The trans alkenes are more stable than cis alkenes
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
