Unformatted text preview: above (4 points) e) One can draw a resonance form for the conjugate base species in question (d). Provide the best resonance form you can for your answer in (d) - be sure your new resonance form has full octets around each carbon (4 points) f) Even using the extremely powerful bases required to carry out the deprotonations described above, an a l k a n e like propane can NOT be deprotonated in the manner that "A" can. Pick either of the two sites undergoing deprotonation in "A"; specify it (you can use the structure at the top); and explain BRIEFLY what makes that site acidic enough to allow deprotonation.
