Dear sai

The three electron withdrawing groups on the methyl group of chloral increase the polarized positive charge at the aldehyde carbon this favors an sp3 arrangement around that carbon CH(OH)2-CCl3 rather than the typical 0=CH-CCl3

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.we will get you the answer and detailed  solution very  quickly.

All the best.

due to three highly electronegative chlorine atoms, the electron cloud on  o atom of hydroxy groups gets shifted towards other carbon providing stability to the compound.

Due to chelation occurring between the chlorine atoms and hydrogen atoms of hydroxyl groups on adjacent carbon atoms chloral hydrate is stable despite having 2 -OH groups on the same carbon atom.

The presence of three highly electronegative chlorine atoms destabilize the aldehyde form...... So stability of chloral hydrate increases due to less stability of its aldehyde form.
