3. (c) ‘a’ carbon of glucose and ‘b’ carbon of fructose.

Explanation :    

In a cyclic structure of glucose or fructose, C atom which is adjacent to oxygen atom is known as anomeric carbon. In the given structures a and b on C which are present adjacent to O atom are anomeric. Both anomeric carbons differ in the configuration of -OH group.

4. (b) CH3CH2NHCH

Explanation :    

The reduction of isonitrile with hydrogen in presence of Ni or Pt is known as catalytic hydrogenation. The —NC is known as isonitrile. In isonitrile, the negative charged carbon work as a nucleophile. It attacks hydrogen and gets protonated. The triple bond shifts to the nitrogen and the lone pair of the nitrogen attacks on another hydrogen and the breaking of the N = C bond results in the secondary amine. Thus, the reduction of CH3CH2NC with hydrogen in presence of Ni or Pt as catalyst gives CH3CH2NHCH3

$$CH_3CH_2NC\xrightarrow{H_2/Ni or Pt}CH_3CH_2NHCH_3$$

5. (d) 1-chloro-2, 2-dimethyl propane

Explanation :    

According to IUPAC Nomenclature, the name of the given compound is 1-chloro-2,2- dimethyl propane.

6.(c) CH3COOH

Explanation :    

Ester can be identified by fruity smell at the end of reaction. When alcohol is treated with acid, alcohol gets protonated via H2SO4 and attacks acid thus, formation of Ester and removal of water molecule can take place. Ester can be identified by fruity smell at the end of reaction. 
$$\underset{Acetic acid}{CH_3COOH}+\underset{Ethanol}{C_2H_5OH}\xrightleftharpoons{abc}\underset{Ethylacetate(fruity smell)}{CH_3COOC_2H_5}+H_2O$$

7. (a) A

Explanation :    

Lower the reduction potential better will be reactivity or chemical activity. Among A, B, C and D, Standard electrode potential i.e., reduction potential of A is minimum (–3.05V) i.e., its oxidation potential is maximum which implies ‘A’ has maximum chemical reactivity.

8. (d) Potassium hexacyanidoferrate(III)

Explanation :    

According to the IUPAC nomenclature, the IUPAC name of K3[Fe(CN)6] is potassium hexacyanidoferrate (III). 

9. (d) 3

Explanation :    

aG + bH → products
Suppose order of reaction = n
When concentration of both C and H doubled then rate increase by eight times.
Rate = K(reactants)n
(8) = K(2)n
(2)3 = K(2)n
n = 3
When concentration of G is doubled keeping the concentration of fixed, the rate is double.
Then, rate ∝ [G]1
rate ∝ [G]1 [H]2

10. (c) 3-methyl-2-butanone

Explanation :    

The longest chain is of four carbon. The functional group here is keto group. The numbering will start from left carbon as the functional group should also have the lowest numbering.
The substituent methyl group will be at third carbon.
Hence, the IUPAC name of this structure is 3-methyl-2-butanone.

11. (d) Fe2+ 

Explanation :    

Let us compare the electronic configuration of these elements:
Mg2+ : 1s22s22p6 : no unpaired electron.
Ti3+ : 1s22s22p63s23p63d1 : one unpaired electron.
V3+ : 1s22s22p63s23p63d2 : two unpaired electrons.
Fe2+ : 1s22s22p63s2sp63d6 : four unpaired electrons.
Thus, we see that Fe2+ has the most unpaired electrons. 

12. (c) Cu2O

Explanation :    

Fehlings solution is a tartaric acid complex of cupric ions.
When acetaldehyde is heated with Fehling’s solution, it gives a red precipitate of Cu2O. 
$$CH_3CHO+2Cu^{2+}+5OH–\xrightarrow{\Delta}CH_3COO–+Cu_2O↓+3H_2O\\\text{Acetaldehyde is oxidised to acetate ion and cupric ions are reduced to cuprous oxide.}$$

13. (a) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A.

Explanation :    

Due to the presence of lone pair of electrons on oxygen atom. Ethers behave as base and form stable oxonium salts with mineral acid. Thus, both assertion and reason are correct statements and reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

Diethyl oxonium chloride

14. (a) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A.

Explanation :    

In the presence of enzyme, substrate molecule can be attacked by a reagent effectively because active sites of enzymes hold the substrate molecule in a suitable position. So, enzyme catalysed reactions are stereospecific reactions. Thus, both assertion and reason are correct statements and reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

15. (d) A is false, but R is true.

Explanation :    

According to Kohlrausch’s law the molar conductivity of an electrolyte at infinite dilution is equal to the sum of the conductances of the anions and cations.
$$\mu^∞=\mu\lambda_+^∞+n\lambda_{–}∞\\\text{r = molar conductance at infinite dilution.}\\\lambda_+,\lambda_–=\text{conductance of cations and anions.}\\\text{m, n = number of ions formed.}$$

So, Kohlrausch law helps to find molar cooductivity of weak electrolyte and infinite dilutions. The conductance of weak electrolytes is low and even at infinite dilution the dissociation of electolyte is not complete, so the molar conductivity of a weak electrolyte at infinite dilution cannot be determined
experimentally. Thus, assertion is wrong statement but reason is correct statement.

16. (a) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A.

Explanation :    

Tetrahedral complexes do not show geometrical isomerism because relative positions of the unidentate ligands attached to the central metal atom are same with respect to each other. This type of isomerism arises in heteroleptic complexes. Thus, both assertion and reason are correct statements and reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

Ce3+ : [Xe] 4f1
Magnetic moment can be calculated as:
μ = √n(n+2)
n = Number of unpaired electrons
Ce3+ = 54[Xe]4f 1 (only one unpaired electron) 
i.e., n = 1
According to ‘spin-only’ formula,
Magnetic moment of μ = √n(n+2)BM 
=√1(1+ 2) BM = √3 BM = 1.73 BM

(b) There are haloalkanes that can undergo elimination in two different ways resulting in two different products. Alkenes with less number of hydrogens on the double-bonded carbon atoms are the preferred product. This process is known as Saytzeff’s rule. According to Saytzeff’s rule in
dehydrohalogenation reactions, the preferred product is that alkene which has the greater number of alkyl groups attached to the doubly bonded carbon atoms.

20. According to Nernst equation,

$$E_{cell}=E°_{cell}\frac{−2.303RT}{nF}log\frac{[Products]^x}{[Reactants]^y}\\E°_{cell}=\frac{−2.303RT}{nF}log\space K_c\\\text{Where,}\\K_c=\text{equilibrium const.}=\frac{[Products]^x} {[Reactants]^y}\\E_{cell}=0,\text{at equilibrium and at 298 K temperature,}\\E°_{cell}\frac{0.0591}{nF}log\space K_c\\\text{Hence, equilibrium constant}(K_c)\text{ is related to}E°_{cell}\text{and not to}E_{cell.}$$

23. (a) Hofmann’s bromamide reaction: When amide is treated with bromide in alkaline solution, and amide yields an amine containing one carbon less than the starting amide.

(b) Carbylamine reaction: Also called as isocyanide reaction which is used as a test for the identification of primary amines. When aliphatic and aromatic primary amines are heated with chloroform and ethanolic potassium hydroxide, carbylamines (or isocyanides) are formed. These carbylamines have very unpleasant odours. Secondary and tertiary amines do not respond to this test.
$$\underset{Primary amine}{R — NH_2}+\underset{Chloroform}{CHCl_3}+\underset{Potassium hydroxide}{3KOH (alc.)}\xrightarrow{\Delta}\underset{Carbylamine}{R — NC}+3KCl + 3H_2O\\\text{For example,}\\\underset{Methanamine}{CH_3 — NH_2}+CHCl_3 + 3KOH (alc.)\xrightarrow{\Delta}\underset{Methyl carbylamine or methyl isocyanide}{CH_3 — NC}+ 3KCl + 3H_2O$$

24. (a) Glycosidic linkage refers to the linkage formed between two monosaccharide units through an oxygen atom by the loss of a water molecule.
For example, in a sucrose molecule two monosaccharide units, a-glucose and b-fructose, are joined together by a glycosidic linkage.


(b) Monosaccharides : Ribose, 2-deoxyribose, Sucrose Galactose, Fructose. Disaccharides : Maltose, Lactose.
(c) In α-helix structure of proteins, the peptide chains are coiled to form right handed helix involving hydrogen bonding. In β-pleated structure of proteins, the peptide chains lie side by side joined together by inter-molecular hydrogen bonding.

25.  (a) Most of the transition metal ions are coloured both in the solid-state and in aqueous solutions. The colour of these ions is attributed to the presence of an incomplete (n – 1) d-subshell. The electrons in these metal ions can be easily promoted from one energy level to another in the same d-subshell. The amount of energy required to excite the electrons to higher energy states within the same d-subshell corresponds to the energy of certain colours of visible light. Therefore, when white light falls on a transition metal compound, some of its energy corresponding to a certain colour
is absorbed causing the promotion of d-electrons. This is known as d-d transitions. The remaining colours of white light are transmitted and the compound appears coloured.

(b) The electronic configuration of Mn2+ is [Ar] 3d5 which is half-filled and hence it is stable. Therefore, the third ionization enthalpy is very high, i.e., the third electron cannot be easily removed. In the case of Fe2+, the electronic configuration is 3d6. Therefore, Fe2+ can easily lose one electron to acquire
a 3d5 stable electronic configuration.

(c) According to the definition, transition elements are those which have partially filled d-subshell in their elementary state or in one of the oxidation states. Silver (Z = 47) can exhibit a + 2 oxidation state in which it has an incompletely filled d-subshell (4d9 configuration). Hence, silver is regarded
as a transition element.
On the other hand, zinc (Z = 30) has the configuration 3d10 4s2. It does not have partially filled d-subshells in its elementary form or in a commonly occurring oxidation state (Zn2+: 3d10). Therefore, it is not regarded as a transition element 

26. The thermal decomposition of SO2Cl2 at a constant volume is represented by the following equation :
$$SO_2Cl_{2(g)}→SO_{2(g)}+Cl_{2(g)}\\At\space t=0\space P_0\space\space 0\space\space 0\\At\space t=t\space P_0–p\space\space p\space\space p\\\text{After time t, total pressure,}P_t=(P_0–p)+p+p\\⇒P_t=P_0+p\\⇒p=P_t–P_0\\\text{Therefore,}\space P_0–P=P_0–(P_t–P_0)\\=2P_0–P_t\\\text{For a first order reaction,}\\k=\frac{2.303}{t}log\frac{p_0}{p_0-P}\\=\frac{2.303}{t}log\frac{p_0}{2p_0-P_t}\\\text{When t=100 sec, k =}\frac{2.303}{100}log\frac{0.5}{2×0.5-0.6}=2.231×10^{–3}s^{–1}.\\When P_t= 0.65atm,\\⇒P_0+p=0.65\\⇒p=0.65–P0=0.65–0.5\\=0.15 atm\\\text{Therefore, when the total pressure is 0.65 atm, pressure of}SO_2Cl_2 is\\SO_2Cl_2=P_0–p\\=0.5–0.15\\=0.35 atm\\\text{Therefore, the rate of equation, when total pressure is 0.65 atm, is given by}\\Rate = k (P_{SO_{2}}Cl_2)\\= (2.23×10^{–3} s^{–1}) (0.35 atm)\\= 7.8×10^{–4} atm s^{–1}.$$

27. It is given that T1 = 298 K
T2 = (298 + 10) K = 308 K
Now, substituting these values in the equation :
$$log\frac{K_2}{K_1}=\frac{E_0}{2.303R}\frac{[T_2-T_1]}{T_1T_2}\\\text{We get}\\log\frac{K_2}{K_1}=\frac{E_0}{2.303×8.314}[\frac{10}{298×308}]\\⇒log2=\frac{E_a}{2.303×8.314}[\frac{10}{298×308}]\\⇒E_a =\frac{2.303×8.314×298×308×log2}{10}\\=\frac{2.303×8.314×298×308×0.3010}{10}\\=52897.78 Jmol^{–1}\\=52.9kJmol^{–1.}$$

28. n-octane is a non-polar solvent. Therefore, the solubility of a non-polar solute is more than that of a polar solute in the n-octane.
The order of increasing polarity is:
Cyclohexane < CH3CN < CH3OH < KCl
Therefore, the order of increasing solubility is:
KCl < CH3OH < CH3CN < Cyclohexane 


29. (a) (CH3)3CCl is a tert-alkyl halide. It does not undergo nucleophilic substitution with C2H5O Na due to steric reason.

30. (a) When the solute does not undergo any dissociation or association in the solution i.e., for nonelectrolyte solution the value of ‘i’ is equal to unity.

(b) The value of i for K2SO4 will be:
K2SO4 → 2K+ + SO42–
i = 3. 

(c) For an electrolytes if one molecule dissociate into ‘n’ particles and ‘a’ be the degree of dissociation then after dissociation particles formed from one particle are (1– a + na)
This is ‘i’.
i = 1 – a + n α


When the solute undergo association in the solution ‘i’ becomes < 1 but when the solute undergoes dissociation in the solution ‘i’ becomes > 1.


31. (a) Conductivity of a solution is defined as the conductance of a solution of 1 cm in length and area of crosssection 1 sq. cm. The inverse of resistivity is called conductivity or specific conductance. It is represented by the symbol κ. If ρ is resistivity, then we can write :
$$k=\frac{1}{\rho},\text{units are}\space Ω^{–1}cm^{–1}or\space S\space cm^{–1}$$

Conductivity always decreases with a decrease in concentration, both for weak and strong electrolytes. This is because the number of ions per unit volume that carry the current in a solution decreases with a decrease in concentration.
Molar conductivity of a solution at a given concentration is the conductance of volume V of a solution containing 1 mole of the electrolyte kept between two electrodes with the area of cross-section A and distance of unit length.
$$\varLambda_mk=\frac{A}{l},\text{Also,}\space\varLambda_mk=\frac{k×1000}{C}\text{where C = concentration}\\\text{Now, l = 1 and A = V (volume containing 1 mole of the electrolyte).}\\\varLambda_mk=kV$$

Molar conductivity increases with a decrease in concentration. This is because the total volume V of the solution containing one mole of the electrolyte increases on dilution.
The variation of Λm with √c for strong and weak electrolytes is shown in the following plot:

(b) (i) Cell reaction.
$$Cu_{(s)}+2Ag^+_{(aq)}→2Ag_{(s)}+Cu^{2+}_{(aq)}\\n=2.\\\text{Using Nernst equation;}\\E_{cell}=E^o_{cell}-\frac{0.0591}{n}log\frac{[Cu^{2+}]^{1}}{[Ag^+]^2}\space((T=298 K))\\i.e.,\space E_{cell}=(+ 0.80V– 0.34V)–\frac{0.0591}{2}(log)\frac{4}{(0.1)^2}\\=+0.46V-\frac{0.0591}{2}(log400)\\=+0.46 V–0.0295×2.6021\\=0.46V–0.0768V=0.3832 V\\Hence,\space E_{cell}=0.3832V.$$

(c) For 3 moles of Fe3+ to convert to Fe2+, we require 1 mol of electron charge per mol.
$$3Fe^{3+}+3e^– →3Fe^{2+}$$

Hence 3 moles of electrons are required.
i.e., Q = 3 × 1 F = 3 × 96500 C.
as, 1 F = charge of 1 mol of electron.
Also, Q = It
$$t=\frac{Q}{t}=\frac{3×96500}{2}second\\=144,750 sec.\space [1 hour = 3600 second]\\\text{Hence, time in hrs}\frac{144750}{3600}=40.20hrs.$$

32. (a) Geometrical isomers of complex [Co(en)2Cl2]+:


(b) In the presence of strong field ligand CO, the unpaired d-electrons of Ni pair up so [Ni(CO4] is diamagnetic but Cl being a weak ligand is unable to pair up the unpaired electrons, so [Ni(Cl4)]2– is paramagnetic.
In [NiCl4]2– complex ion, nickel is in +2 oxidation state and the configuration is 3d8. Since the molecule is tetrahedral, it involves sp3-hybridisation as shown below: 

Electron pairs from Cl ions

The molecule is paramagnetic because it contains two unpaired electrons.
In [NiCl4] nickel is in O oxidation state and has the configuration 4s2 3d4 or 3d10. The molecule is tetrahedral and involves sp3-hybridisation as given below:
