                                        3,5 dimethyl 4ammino benzoic acid is more acidic as Positive inductive groups r present far away to the COOH gourp resulting in more acidities than 3,6 dimethyl benzoic acid.

                                         2,6 - dimethyl 4-amino Benzoic acid  is more acidic .
due to ortho effect it is more acidic.
ortho effect means:if any group present on  ortho position of benzoic acid it always increases acidic nature of acid  because this group decreases outer resonance of ring towards acid which  increases acidic nature for example orthonitrobenzoic acid is most  acidic in any nitro derivative of benzoic acid.orthomethyl benzoic acid  is maximum acidic than other isomers.similarly if any group present on  ortho position of aniline it decreases basic nature.

                                        Sorry,  just missed the Ortho effect (Steric Inhibition of Resonace). The ortho substitutued for is more acidic irrecpective of the inductive effect it produces. 2,6 dimethyl 4-ammino benzoic acid is more acidic.

Which of the following hydrocarbons has the lowest dipolemoment? Give explanation. (1) Trans-2-butene (2) 2-butyne (3) 1-butyne (4) But-1-en-3-yne

Dipole moment (μ) is the measure of net molecular polarity, trans 2 butene has a dipole moment of 0 because the presence of each CH3 group on the opposite side cancels each other effect
