Assertion : It is difficult to replace chlorine by –OH in chlorobenzene in comparison to that in chloroethane.
Reason : Chlorine-carbon (C—Cl) bond in chlorobenzene has a partial double bond character due to resonance.
In chlorobenzene, due to resonance partial double bond character appears in bond between C & Cl atom and we all know that replacing of partial double bond character is bit difficult than replacing single bond as present in C-Cl bond in chloroethane.
