Hi Ravikumar,


 


No. That is not true.


They can show other isomerism as Geometrical Isomerism and Optical isomerism as well.

The isomerism is conformational, optical, and nuclear(chain) ones.

Molarity of 30 volume H2O2 is. 1- same as its normality 2-half as its normality 3- doble as its normality 4-onefourth as its normality
 
 
As we know that Normality = Molarity X n-factor N= M X n-factor For H2O2, n-factor = 2 (No of replaceable hydrogens) N= M X 2 So option (2) is correct....
