# Which of the following orders regarding the acid character of hydrogen halides in the aqueous medium is correct?

$\begin{array}{1 1}HCl > HBr < HI\\HCl < HBr > HI\\HCl > HBr > HI\\HCl < HBr < HI\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

Answer : HCl < HBr < HI
The order of electronegativity of halogens is F > Cl > Br > I
Hence,acid strength follows the reverse order.
