16. How will you convert?
(i) Phenol to 4-bromophenol
(ii) Phenol to 2-acetoxy benzoic acid

17. Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of the acid strength. Propane-1-ol, 2,4, 6-trinitrophenol 3-nitrophenol, 3-5 dinitrophenol, 4-methyl phenol

18. Give equations of the following reactions.
(i) Oxidation of propan – 1 – ol with alkaline KMnO4, solution.
(ii) Bromine is CS2 with phenol
(iii) Dilute HNO3 with phenol.
(iv) Treating phenol with chloroform in the presence of aqueous NaOH

19. An organic compound ‘A’ molecule formula C3H6 on the treatment with aqueous H2SO4 gives ‘B’ which on treatment with HCl/ZnCl2 gives ‘C’. Compound C on treatment with ethanolic KOH gives back the compound ‘A’. Identify the compound A, B, C.

20. (i) How will you convert phenol to benzoic acid?
(ii) An organic compound A having molecular formula C6H6O gives a characteristic colour with aqueous FeCl3 solution A on treatment with CO2 and NaOH at 400 K under pressure gives B which on acidification gives a compound C.
