Of the five isomeric hexanes, the isomer which can give two monochlorinated compounds is
Option;-2- 2,3-dimethyl butane
As we learnt in
Chemical Reaction Halogenation of alkane -
When alkane react with halogen in presence of UV light it give free radical substitution reaction.
2,3 - dimethylbutane contains only two types of hydrogen atoms. Hence, only 2 monochlorinated compounds are formed.
This option is incorrect.
