Statement - 1: Aryl halides undergo nucleophilic substitution with ease. Statement - 2: The carbon - halogen bond in aryl halides has partial double bond character.

(a) Statement - 1 is true; Statement - 2 is true; Statement - 2 is a correct explanation for statement -1

(b) Statement - 1 is true; Statement - 2 is true; Statement - 2 is not a correct explanation for statement -1

(c) Statement - 1 is true; Statement - 2 is false

(d) Statement - 1 is false; Statement - 2 is true

1 Answer

Statement -1 is false.
(aryl halides do not undergo nucleophilic substitution under ordinary conditions).
Statement - 2 is correct.
The carbon-halogen bond in aryl halides have partial double bond character so it becomes shorter and stronger and cannot be easily replaced by nucleophiles.
So, Statement - 1 is false; Statement - 2 is true
Hence d is the correct answer.
