Expert Answer

Organic chemistry problem

Electron donors are the groups that can donate electrons either by resonance (lone pair of electrons) or by induction (through sigma-sigma bond).

1. The given group is an,                       Inductive effect : a                            Resonance effect : d

The lone pair on oxygen participates by donating to the adjacent double bond futher through delocalisation therefore, the group is an electron donor by resonance.

Oxygen is a high...
