The decreasing order of stability of ions is

(i) CH3 – CH+ – CH3

(ii) CH3 – CH+ – OCH3

(i) CH3 – CH+ – COCH3

(a) (i) > (ii) > (iii)

(a) (ii) > (i) > (iii)

(a) (ii) > (iii) > (i)

(a) (iii) > (i) > (ii)

    A carbocation is stabilizes by dispersal of charge. More will be number of electron donating group greater will be the dispersal of positive charge and hence carbocation will be more stable.

    So the required order will be

    (ii) > (i) > (iii)
