Solution for 10 (b) query,
If the structure of alkyl halide is such that it can undergo elimination reaction in two different ways due to the availability of different types of beta hydrogens, then the more highly substituted alkene that is having lesser number of hydrogen atoms on the doubly bonded carbon atom, is formed as the major product.
The generalization of this dehydrohalogenation reaction is known as Saytzeff's rule.
