Will benzene decolourise bromine water or not and why?

Benzene molecule is unsaturated but it does not undergo electrophillic addition reaction because saturating the carbon-carbon bonds destroys the delocalized pi-cloud and as we know that this delocalized pi-structure is very stable. So due to this benzene does not decolourises bromine water.

no benzene will not decolourise bromine water as it does not undergo addition reaction.it is highly saturated due to presence electron cloud above and below it...

HOPE THIS HELPS!!PLS GV THUMS UP IF U LYK:):)
