MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

AIPMT 2012 Mains

In which of the following arrangements the given sequence is not strictly according to the property indicated against it?
A
HF < HCl < HBr < HI : increasing acidic strength
B
H2O < H2S < H2Se < H2Te : increasing pKa values
C
NH3 < PH3 < AsH3 < SbH3 : increasing acidic character
D
CO2 < SiO2 < SnO2 < PbO2 : increasing oxidising power

Explanation

If acidic nature is high, Ka is high and pKa is low.

since pKa = – log Ka

Hence the order of pKa will be

H2O > H2S > H2Se > H2Te

In which of the following compounds, nitrogen exhibits highest oxidation state?
A
N2H4
B
NH3
C
N3H
D
NH2OH

Explanation

N2H4 : Oxidation state of N = – 2

NH3 : Oxidation state of N = – 3

N3H : Oxidation state of N = – 1/3

NH2OH : Oxidation state of N = – 1

$$ \therefore $$ Highest oxidation state = –1/3
