Problem: In Section 3.4, we learned four factors (ARIO) for comparing the relative acidity of compounds. When two of these factors are in competition, the order of priority is the order in which these factors were covered (“atom” being the most important factor and “orbital” being the least important). However, we also mentioned that there are exceptions to this order of priority. One such exception was covered at the end of Section 3.4. Compare the two compounds below and determine if they constitute another exception. Justify your choice:
