    a. There are only four lines in the aromatic region of the fully 1H decoupled 13C NMR spectrum of propyl p-tolyl ether (110-160 ppm), yet there six aromatic carbon atoms. Explain.
    b. Which is a stronger base, aniline or cyclohexylamine? Explain.
    c. Write an equation for the reaction of pthalimide with potassium amide (a strong base) in N,N-dimethylformide (DMF) solvent. Name the product.
