Which of the following statements concerning alcohols in incorrect?

  1. a. They may be viewed as alkyl or cycloalkyl derivatives of water.
  2. b. They may be viewed as hydroxyl derivatives of alkanes or cycloalkanes.
  3. c. The functional group is always attached to a saturated carbon atom.
  4. d. no correct response

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The incorrect statement among the given statements concerning alcohols has to be chosen.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct option:

Alcohol is an organic compound in which the oxygen atom is present that is bonded to a hydrogen atom and a saturated carbon atom. A saturated carbon atom is the one which is bonded to four other atoms. This can be depicted as,

The structure of alcohol can be viewed as alkyl or cycloalkyl derivatives of water where, a hydrogen atom is replaced by an alkyl or cycloalkyl group.

They are also viewed as hydroxyl derivatives of alkanes and cycloalkanes. In this a hydrogen atom in alkane or cycloalkane is replaced by the hydroxyl group.

As from the discussion above it is found that option (d) is a correct option.

Reason for incorrect option:

Option (a) tells that the structure of alcohol can be viewed as alkyl or cycloalkyl derivatives of water where, a hydrogen atom is replaced by an alkyl or cycloalkyl group...
