I have read that : "Any charge on benzene ring gets stabilized or destabilized by Inductive effect only "

If it is true then what is the reason behind this?

Why don't we use Mesmeric and other effect for stabilized or destabilized of benzene

    $\begingroup$ I take it you are confused by the word "only", right? $\endgroup$ – Karl Aug 11 at 6:59
  • $\begingroup$ Delocalization of the p orbitals. 6 p orbitals merge together to form a ring-shaped molecular orbital. The charge is therefore delocalized in this big orbital $\endgroup$ – blu potatos Aug 11 at 9:00
