We are being asked to determine which molecular fragment is expected to be more likely to give rise to electrical conductivity.
Since both of the given fragments are only composed of C and H, they are both nonelectrolytes and will not conduct electricity
Which of these molecular fragments would you expect to be more likely to give rise to electrical conductivity?
