The order of stability of the following carbocations:

(I) \(CH_2 = CH - \overset{+}{C}H_2\)

(II) \(CH_3 - CH_2 - \overset{+}{C}H_2\)

(III)  figure.png

(IV) \(\overset{+}{C}H_3\) is

(a) IV > III > II > I

(b) II > III > I > IV

(c) III > I > II > IV

(d) III > I > IV > II

Correct answer: (c) III > I > II > IV

Explanation:

Higher stability of allyl and aryl substituted methyl carbocation is due to dispersal of positive charge due to resonance

Hence the correct order of stability will be
