CH3CH2NO2 will show

a)position isomerism

b)functional isomerism

c)tautomerism

d)geometrical isomerism

and why?

c). Tautomerism.
Actually, nitroethane is the primary nitroalkane and primary or secondary nitroalkane undergo tautomerism through the nitro group known as nitro -aci nitro tautomerism. In this type the nitro group rapidly converts to aci nitro group as for example:
