Is it meta ethyl phenol
Here firstly what is formed.
Para bromo meta nitro phenol
please tell me total i am confused a bit.
The activating group always directs the incoming electrophile
why does br does not add at ortho
I think no2 does not want it to be at its ortho position but for ortho of Oh it is favoured by by Oh and No2 as it is little away?

Someone please upload the product at each step.
Electrophilic substitution of Disubstituted benzene is not in syllabus
bro can you draw product at each step on paper
In the first step, why is Br getting attached ortho to OH group and para to NO2. Shouldn't it be para to OH group.
Br can show hydrogen bonding to -oH group and can also avoid strong -I by -NO2 group by attaching Ortho to -OH group
