So I asked this question. But it got 2 downvoted with 5 views.
Which of the following alphabets have a five-membered chain as the longest chain? A, E, F, H, I, K, M, T, V, W, X, Y, Z?
a) A, E, H
b)E, M, W
c)K, M, X
d)F, W, Z
d) is the right answer.
Question is taken from "Elementry problems in Organic Chemistry" by MS Chauhan. Question number 6 page number 7.
I failed to understand what this question is trying to ask. Any hints are appreciated.
I can only find these three relevant links on a search.
But they are don't answer the problem by giving an explanation.
How can I improve this question?
