As we learnt in

Chemical properties of aldehydes and ketones -

Undergo nucleophilic addition reactions at carbon-oxygen double bond, hybridization of carbon changes from sp2 to  sp2.  Aldehydes are more reactive than ketones due to steric hindrance and  +I effect of an alkyl group.

Reactivity order of hydrohalic acid -

Towards electrophilic addition reaction reactivity order is

HI> HBr> HCl> HF

- wherein

H-I Less bond associate enthalpy.

 

 Electrophilic addition reaction is most favourable

Halogen

CH_{2}= CH-OCH_{3}+HBr\rightarrow CH_{3}-CH(Br)-O-CH_{3}
