When Ethyli Diene​DiBromide solution is warmed with metallic sodium the product formed is​
  1. 2-butene
  2. ​1-butene
  3. butane
  4. 1,4-dibromo-2-butene
Ans and explaination

Dear Student,

Wurtz reaction will take place here. Ethylidene dibromide is 1,1-dibromoethane. When its solution is heated with sodium metal, then two molecules of ethylidene dibromide reacts with 4 molecules of Na to give 2-butene.
Hence, the correct option is (1)
