3-chloropronaoic will be less acidic then
2-chloropropanoic acid because In 2-chloropropanoic acid, Clorine is on adjacent carbon atom to carboxyl Carbon, while in 3-chloropropanoic acid Cl- is far away. So it will have less -I effect (inductive effect). Hence, 3-chloropronaoic is less acidic then 2-chloropropanoic acid.
