Conjugate acid of a weak base is always stronger. What will be the decreasing order of basic strength of the following conjugate bases ?
OH-, RO-, ch3coo- , cl-

Conjugate acids of given bases are H2O, ROH, CH3COOH, HCl.
Their acidic strength is in the order
HCl > CH3COOH > H2O >ROH Hence, basic strength is in the order RO - >OH - >CH3COO → Cl - >
