For this question, why cant this be the mechanism??
As methyl group increases the electron density on Oxygen atom shouldnt the electrophile attack on the oxygen atom attached to methyl group??
The ether group is less active towards attack than a hydroxyl group and hence the protonation of OH oxygen will only occur.
Is rearrangement possible? And why is the ether group less active? @Churchil_Dwivedi
Ether is less active because it is surrounded by similar atoms on both sides, mainly carbon..while he OH has a Hydrogen on one side making it highly active.
And yeah, of course there is a rearrangement possible after the attack on OH group.
Okok got it.. Maine to conjugation ki band bja di

Allyl c+ is more stable than 3° C+ ,no?
Answer given is (c)
The answer should be c clearly..
It's allyl chloride not allylic chloride..
and the stability of carbocation is as follows:
Allyl and allylic me kya difference?
If the positively charged carbon is bonded to two 'H' and a vinyl group (CH_2=CH-), this is termed as allyl carbocation , and if positively charged carbon is bonded to one or two alkyl group and a vinyl group these are termed as allylic carbocations.
