Answer :

Inductive effect decreases with increase in distance(the more will be the distance of the inductive group from the carboxylic group less will be its effect of polarisability). Hence, the -I effect of F in CH3CHFCH2CO2H is more than it is in CH2FCH2CH2CO2H . Hence, CH3CHFCH2CO2H is a stronger acid than CH2FCH2CH2CO2H .
