    The silica column is polar, so the eluting solvent will be of a more non-polar nature, therefore non-polar molecules will interact more strongly with the eluting solvent more than the column. So the most polar will be elute last and the most non-polar will elute first.

    from the functional groups present and the geometry of the molecule

    that's not the right order. the most non-polar is the one that is a hydrocarbon, then the aromatic ring, then the alcohol and then the acid
