There is Case Study Questions in class 12 Chemistry in session 2020-21. For the first time, the board has introduced the case study questions in the board exam. The first two questions in the board exam question paper will be based on Case Study and Assertion & Reason. The first question will have 5 MCQs out of which students will have to attempt any 4 questions. The second question will carry 5 Assertion & Reason type questions with the choice to attempt any four. Here are the questions based on case study.

Case Study Question 1:

Few rules for naming coordination compounds are:

(I) In ionic complex, the cation is named first and then the anion.

(II) In the coordination entity, the ligands are named first and then the central metal ion.

(III) When more than one type of ligands are present, they are named in alphabetical order of preference with any consideration of charge
