The indicated bond is:
A) Nucleophilic because it is electron-deficient.
B) Electrophilic because it is electron-rich.
C) Nucleophilic because it is electron-rich.
D) Electrophilic because it is electron-deficient.
The answer is D. I'm arguing with my friend because of this particular question.
I argued that there may be an error in this question. The arrow is pointing toward a carbon atom, so the question should be "The indicated carbon atom is:". But, if you take the question as it is, I answered C since I think that the "indicated bond" is the double bond, and is therefore nucleophilic and electron-rich. If it is not the double bond, then what is the indicated bond in this question? And is it possible for a single bond to be electrophilic?
