• # question_answer With a change in hybridisation of the carbon bearing the charge, the stability of a carbanion increase in the order [DCE 2003] A) $sp<s{{p}^{2}}<s{{p}^{3}}$ B) $sp<s{{p}^{3}}<s{{p}^{2}}$ C) $s{{p}^{3}}<s{{p}^{2}}<sp$ D) $s{{p}^{2}}<sp<s{{p}^{3}}$

Stability of carbanions increase with increase in s-character of hybrid orbitals of carbon bearing charge, hence correct order is : $s{{p}^{3}}<s{{p}^{2}}<sp$.
