Compound having lowest boiling point is?

A. Carbon Tetrachloride
B. Ethyl Alcohol
C. Benzene
D. Acetic Acid


Correct Answer: A. Carbon Tetrachloride

Detail about MCQs

The boiling point of a compound depends on its molecular structure and intermolecular forces. In this case, we can compare the compounds listed to determine which one has the lowest boiling point. The intermolecular forces from weakest to strongest are generally as follows: London dispersion forces (Van der Waals forces) < Dipole-dipole forces < Hydrogen bonding.
A. Carbon Tetrachloride (CCl4) is a nonpolar molecule and primarily exhibits London dispersion forces. It has a relatively low boiling point compared to compounds with stronger intermolecular forces
