    1)
    What is the order of increasing acidity for the following compound (least to most)?

    Acidity: III < II < I < IV
    Looking at the extremes...

    The Cl compound and the unsubstituted benzoic acid are in between, but the Cl is electron withdrawing, so it will be more acidic.

    2)
    What is the ...
