The tendency of a substance to undergo a particular reaction is called reactivity. Aldehydes and ketones show nucleophilic addition reactions. Generally , aldehydes are more reative than ketones in nucleophilic addition reactions. This is mainly because of more positive charge and less hinderence at the carbonyl carbon. The two alkyl gp in ketones reduce positive charge by +I effect and hinder the attack of nucleophile. Hope ypu understood the reasons approve the answer if correct.
