Doubts in Aromatic hydrocarbon

#1

Please help with 3.Answer is C

#2

Ph-O(-) has more electron density than any other compound so it will attract electrophile.

#3

Can't we think about this discussion like RS- IS A better nuclrophile than RO-. due to polarisability of S.
SO PHS- Better nucelphile

#4

You are right RS(-) is more nucleophilic than
RO(-)
But here he is asking electrophilic substitution
So RO(-) has greater tendency to accept electrophile.

#5

Actually I am confused here wont a better nucleophile accept electrophile More easily.
Please explain

#6

See nucleophile donates electron if it donate electron it will be nucleophilic substitution reaction then it will not be a electrophilic substitution reaction .
Still any doubt you can ask.

I think you are confused between a strong nucleophile is a better donar not acceptor.
If it donate the reaction will be nucleophilic .
Now I think it clear to you
