The correct order of decreasing acid strength of trichloroacetic acid (A), trifluoroacetic acid (B), acetic acid (C) and formic acid (D) is
A
B > A > D > C
B
B > D > C > A
C
A > B > C > D
D
A > C > B > D

Explanation

As –I effect increases, COOH group becomes more electron deficient and tendency to loose H+ ions increases i.e., acid strength increases. As +I effect increases, acid strength decreases. Thus, correct order of acid strength is
