Which is more readily soluble in water - chlorobenzene, cyclohexyl chloride, 2-chlorocyclehexene, 1-chloro cyclo hexene?

Dear User,
Greater the polarity of a compound, greater will be its solubility in water. Among Chlorobenzene, Cyclohexyl chloride, 2-Chlorocylcohexene and 1-Chlorocyclohexene, chlorobenzene is most polar as it is an aromatic compound having delocalised electron and so due to the ring current, it is most polar and hence most soluble than rest.
