# Which of the following resonating structures of $1-methoxy -1, 3- butadiene$ is least stable?

$(a)\;\bar {C}H_2 - CH = CH-CH=O^+ -CH_3 \\ (b)\;CH_2 = CH_2 - CH_2-CH=O^+ -CH_3 \\ (c)\;\bar {C}H_2 - CH - CH = CH - O- CH_3 \\ (d)\;CH_2 = CH - \bar {C}H-C^+H - O -CH_3$

so, $\bar {C}H_2 - CH - CH = CH - O- CH_3$
Hence c is a the correct answer.
