# Inductive effect involves

(a) Delocalization of $\sigma$ - electrons

(b) Displacement of $\sigma$ - electrons

(c) Delocalization of $\pi$ - electrons

(d) Displaement of $\pi$ - electrons

Inductive effect is the permanent displacement of $\sigma$ electrons along a saturated carbon chain towards the more electro negative substituent (atom or group)
Hence it is Displacement of $\sigma$ - electrons
Hence b is the correct answer.
