    Need help. Actually I think I know what the answer is but the book says I'm wrong and my lecturer says that some of the answers in the book are incorrect. Just want to check if this is one of those answers. lol. If you can let me know what you think it is please so I can check??

    Book says it's O. But I'm pretty sure it's Cl.

    I think it could be O but Cl seems correct

    i think it would be the oxygen, in terms of comparison between the O and H there is a greater electronegativity difference than between Cl and C. Cl - C = 3.16 - 2.55 < 3.44 -2.2 = O - H
