Step 1

Dear student, you have not mentioned the parts you need answer for. I am answering first three parts. If you need answers to other parts, please re-post your question mentioning the parts you need answers for.

a) In the given copound, -F generates negative inductive effect by pushing the bond electrons towards itself. This generates partial charges on the carbons atoms of the chain. The carbon atom attached directly with fluorine, develops the maximum partial positive charge and is thus most likely to be attacked by an approaching nucleophile.

The carbon atom is single bonded. Frontier orbital is sigma.

b) In the given compound, C=O bond is the most polar and thus carbon attached to oxygen (more eletcronegative than carbon) develops maximum p...
