Expert Answer:

 Thomson's model of atom was rejected because;
Although Thomson's atomic model explained why an atom is electrically neutral, it could not explain the distribution of electrons in the atom.
If we accept that electrons are embedded in the positive charge, then the opposite electric charges should cancel each other out and the charged sphere would become chargeless.
Thomson's model could not explain why different elements have different chemical properties.
