Consider the molecules CH4, NH3 and H2O. Which of the given statement is false?

• The H-O-H bond angle in H2O  is larger than the H-C-H bond angle in CH4.

• The H-O-H bond angle in H2O is smaller than the H-N-H bond angle in NH3.

• The H-C-H bond angle in CH4 is larger than the H-N-H bond angle in NH3

• The H-C-H bond angle in CH4, the H-N-H bond angle in H2O are all greater than 900.

A.

The H-O-H bond angle in H2O  is larger than the H-C-H bond angle in CH4.

According to VBT: lone pair-lone pair repulsion is more than a bond pair -lone pair repulsion.
As the number of lone pair of electrons on central element increases, repulsion between that lone pair of electrons increases and therefore, bond angle decreases.

 Molecules Bond angle CH4 (no lone pair of electrons) 1090.5 NH3(one lone pair of electrons) 107.50 H2O (two lone pair of electrons) 104.450

• [NF3 and BF3]

• [BF-4 and NH4-]

D.

Consider the following compounds

Hyperconjugation occurs in

• I only

• II only

• III only

• I and III

C.

III only

Hyperconjugation occurs through the H- atoms present on the carbon atom next to the double bond i.e alpha hydrogen atoms. There is no alpha -H in the structure I and II.
So, hyperconjugation occurs in structure III only ie.

The enolic form of ethyl acetoacetate as below has

• 18 sigma bonds and 2 pi-bond

• 16 sigma bonds and 1 pi-bond

• 9 sigma bonds and 2 pi-bond

• 9 sigma bonds and 1 pi-bond

A.

18 sigma bonds and 2 pi-bond

In enolic form of ethyl acetoacetate has 16 single bonds i.e 16 sigma bond and 2 double bonds i.e 2 sigma bonds and 2pi bonds.
Hence, the given structure has 18 sigma bonds and 2 pi bonds.
