Why do alkenes prefer to undergo electrophilic

Question:

Why do alkenes prefer to undergo electrophilic addition reaction while arenes

Solution:

Alkenes undergo addition reaction to give a more stable saturated product. In this reaction hybridization changes from sp2to sp3.

The resonance stability of arene is maintained by a substitution reaction.
