Essay Questions on "Organic Chemistry" for Tertiary Institution students - 3 Steem Prize for Correct Answers

Hello teachers, students, and researchers, I am here again today, Wednesday, 8th April, 2020, to share help refresh your mind on Organic Chemistry.

Chemistry is one very important part f living things. This is because it the unique make up of any matter. The make up or constitution of a matter is the essence of its classification or identification. Thus, for science and non-science students, the knowledge of Chemistry is important.

In today's piece, I will be creating some basic questions on Organic Chemistry. These questions would require some deep thinking and detailed explanations as answers. This is to help boost the cognitive part of the students in thinking and argument. You are free to use the comments section of this posts for your answers.

Organic chemistry is a sub-discipline of chemistry that studies the structure, properties and reactions of organic compounds, which contain carbon in covalent bonding. Study of structure determines their chemical composition and formula.

Time Allowed for Test: 3 hours
Instructions: Answer all questions. Some are subjective and some require statements as answers.
Prize: Feel free to use the comments section of this post to attempt the questions. First correct entry wins 3 Steem.
