# Q 12.8     Which acid of each pair shown here would you expect to be stronger?      (iii)     $CH_{2}FCH_{2}CH_{2}CO_{2}H$ or $CH_{3}CH FCH_{2}CO_{2}H$

Since we know that inductive effect depends on distance. Greater is the distance lesser is the effect. So, -I effect in $CH_{3}CH FCH_{2}CO_{2}H$ is more.
$CH_{3}CH FCH_{2}CO_{2}H$ is more acidic than $CH_{2}FCH_{2}CH_{2}CO_{2}H$.
