9. Must possess adequate knowledge on various reaction mechanism, preparation of organic compounds and their properties.

10. Must be aware of type of components in which organic reactions take place and also to know the preparation of the essential organic compounds.

Organic Chemistry Internship Test


Intern has to take Organic Chemistry internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Organic Chemistry topic.

1. Bond energy and the corresponding bond length vary directly with each other.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Smaller the bond energy, greater will be the bond length and vice versa and hence the two vary inversely with each other.

2. Potassium Ion K+ has the same electronic configuration as that of which noble gases mentioned below?
(A) Krypton
(B) Xenon
(C) Argon
(D) Radon
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: Potassium has atomic number 19, hence it has 19 electrons and therefore K+ has 18 electrons, which is the same as noble gas Argon.

3. Which among the following does not match with the term solubility?
(A) The structural units get separated from each other
(B) The ion-dipole bond is very strong
(C) The spaces in between the structures are occupied by solvent molecules
(D) The electrostatic attraction between the oppositely charged ions and their corresponding ends are called ion-dipole bond
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The bond is weak but in the aggregate they supply enough energy to overcome the interionic forces.

4. Which one will change from red litmus to blue?
(A) NaCl
(B) HCl
(D) LiOH
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: since HCl is a base it turns red litmus to blue.

5. Identify the chiral molecule among the following.
(A) Isopropyl alcohol
(B) 2-pentanol
(C) 1-bromo 3-butene
(D) Isobutyl alcohol
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Chirality is the condition for a molecule to be optically active and here isobutyl alcohol is the only compound is optically active and hence it is the chiral molecule.
