Best answer

Answer: (b) S1 is is true, S2 is false

Solution: O-nitrophenol has intramolecular H-bonding while p-nitrophenol has intermolecular H-bonding. Due to this, molecules of o-nitrophenol are weakly held together and therefore steam volatile.

O – nitrophenol’s melting point = 216°C

P – nitrophenol’s melting point = 279°C
