Doubt in GOC


Compare acidity. Pls explain as well.




option 1>2 is correct


1>2 bcoz carbanion formed will be stabilised by resonance


The answer says otherwise


There is no good place for extraction of H+ in 1. Basically, 1 has less acidic hydrogens.
Carbanion formed in 1 will be less resonance stabised due to cross conjugation.
So, 2>1


Oh yes cross conjugation. The answer by @Manan_2020 is correct.


Basically acidity means that we have to check the stability of anion(after removal of H) so in both the option we have to check the stability of Anion.
