Problem

Part A

Rank the following compounds from most acidic to least.

Rank from most acidic to least acidic. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them. 

Solution

Any EN force that helps to pull electrons away from the conjugate is called an inductive effect.  If you can spread out that negative charge over multiple atoms, that base will be more stable. Even though R groups are not that electronegative, it can still contribute to the acidity as inductive effect. 

Factors that increase inductive effects:
