Arrange the following in order of stability of carbocation. Which should me more stable 3rd or 4th? Please explain the reason in detail.

Expert Answer:

Stability of carbocation is directly proportional to hyperconjugative effect, Mesomeric effect and Inductive effect.
Third is more stable than fourth because it is having 3 alpha hydrogens. Although fourth is having higher + inductive effect than third, but 3rd is more stable than 4th.
Because, Hyperconjugative effect> Inductive effect
