Arrange the follo

Answer :

The increasing order of their acidic character:


Cresol < Phenol < Benzoic Acid


Cresol is less acidic than phenol because of the presence of electron donating methyl group in it which does not favour the formation of phenoxide ion as in case of phenol. Apart from this, benzoic acid is more acidic than phenol because of the formation of a more stable ion due to the presence of benzene ring
