decreasing reactivity to ring monobromnination of following
Benzoic acid
Nitro benzene
with reason

Asked by Akhandpratapsingh1999 6th April 2017, 9:50 AM

Electrophilic substitution of toluene is much faster in comparison to benzene.
The -CH3 group activates the benzene ring towards electrophilic aromatic substitution.
Nitro group in nitrobenzene is a strongly deactivating group and carboxyl group in benzoic acid is a moderately deactivating group.
So decreasing reactivity to ring monobromnination can be written as follows:
Toluene > Benzene > Benzoic acid > Nitrobenzene
