Question

The major reason WHY phenol is more acidic than cyclohexanol is: Group of answer choices the cyclohexyl group is an electron donating group by induction, which destabilizes the anion formed in the reaction the phenyl group is an electron withdrawing group by induction, which stabilizes the anion formed in the reaction phenol is able to stabilize the anion formed in the reaction by resonance it is a better proton donor

    Answer:

    Option B, the phenyl group is an electron withdrawing group by induction, which stabilizes the anion formed in the reaction

    Explanation:

    Cyclohexanol  is less acidic than the phenol and has a stable alkoxide ion. Phenol group is attached to the oxygen atom and due to a double bond and presence of negative inductive effect, phenols act as an electron withdrawing group. The anion is stabilized by induction  

    Hence, option B is correct
