Choose the correct statement regarding the formation of carbocations
Question:

Choose the correct statement regarding the formation of carbocations A and $\mathrm{B}$ given :-

1. Carbocation B is more stable and formed relatively at faster rate

2.  Carbocation A is more stable and formed relatively at slow rate

3. Carbocation B is more stable and formed relatively at slow rate

4. Carbocation $\mathrm{A}$ is more stable and formed relatively at faster rate

Correct Option: 1

Solution:

This is more stable due to secondary cation formation and formed with faster rate due to low activation energy.
