Q)

# Although chlorine is an electron with drawing group , yet it is ortho- , Para - directing in electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction . Explain why it is so ?

$\begin{array}{1 1}\text{(a) Chlorine act as o, p directing group because of resonance.}\\\text{(b) Chlorine act as o, p directing group due to the presence of lone pair of protons .}\\\text{(c) Chlorine act as o, p directing group because of sp hybridization.}\\\text{(d) Chlorine act as o, p directing group because of inductive effect}\end{array}$

Hence , further substitution takes place at $o^{-}$ and $p{-}$ positions .
