Which of the following represents the correct order of acidity in the given compounds?
(a) FCOOH > COOH > BrCOOH > ClCOOH
(b) BrCOOH > ClCOOH > FCOOH > COOH
(c) FCOOH > ClCOOH > BrCOOH > COOH
(d) COOH > BrCOOH > ClCOOH > FCOOH
(c) The acidity of halogenated acid increases with increase in electronegativity of the halogen present. So, the correct order is order is F > Ce >Br
FCOOH > ClCOOH > BrCOOH > COOH
