Suppose you want to study the equilibrium of the reaction of a metal like zinc $\ce{Zn}$ with water to produce $\ce{ZnO(s)}$ and $\ce{H2}$ :$$\ce{Zn(s) + H2O(g) <=> ZnO(s) + H2(g)}$$ At high temperature, the equilibrium constant may be written $$K_\mathrm{1}=\frac{[\ce{ZnO}]·p\ce{(H2)}}{[\ce{Zn}]·p\ce{(H2O)}}$$ In this expression three parameters are ...

The answer will be (a) Acyl chloride. The acyl carbon in an acyl chloride is connected to the chlorine atom. While you have acknowledged this fact, you have missed the point that the +M (resonance) effect of Chlorine is overcome by the -I (inductive) effect. Thus, the electrophilicity of the acyl carbon is actually greater than the electrophilicity of the ...
