Choose the incorrect statement :- (a) Salicylic acid (o-hydroxy benzoic acid) is much stronger than its m–, p– isomers and benzoic acid itself. (b) Acidity of salicylic acid is due steric inhibition of resonance, as —OH group forces —COOH out of the plane of ring. (c) The orbitals which are in the same plane takes part in resonance (d) All the resonating structures have real existence
