Q)

# Which of the following rings in most strained ?

$(a)\;Cyclohexane \\ (b)\;Cyclopentane \\ (c)\;Cyclobutane \\ (d)\;Cyclopropane$

Due to the planar geometry of cycloalkanes, the carbon - carbon bond angles between two different bonds in the cycloalkanes deviates from the ideal tetrahedral bond angle $(109^{\circ}28')$.
