In the following the most stable conformation of n-butane is
A
B
C
D

Explanation

The anti-conformation is the most stable conformation of n-butane. In this, the bulky methyl groups are as far apart as possible thereby keeping steric repulsion at a minimum.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

AIPMT 2010 Prelims

Liquid hydrocarbons can be converted to a mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons by
A
oxidation
B
cracking
C
distillation under reduced pressure
D
hydrolysis

Explanation

On cracking or pyrolysis, the hydrocarbon with higher molecular mass gives a mixture of hydrocarbons having lower molecular masses. Hence, liquid hydrocarbons can be converted into a mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons. (Lower hydrocarbons exist in gaseous state while higher ones are in liquid state or solid state.)
