Considering this, is an EDG or EWG?
Electron donating groups (EDG) are ortho-para directors. Electron withdrawing groups (EWG) are meta-directors.
Subsequently, question is, which groups are electron withdrawing? An electron withdrawing group (EWG) draws electrons away from a reaction center.
- halogens (F, Cl);
- nitriles CN;
- carbonyls RCOR’;
- nitro groups NO2.
One may also ask, which is more electron withdrawing CN or no2?
An electron withdrawing groups as NO2, CN, -CHO etc. Now consider the given options NO2 show greater -I ( inductive effect ) effect than CN hence it will stabilise the negative charge more as compare to CN. Therefore, we can say that nitro propanoic caid is the strongest acid among all.
Is electron donating or withdrawing?
An electron releasing group or ERG (may also be called electron donating groups or EDG’s) releases electrons into a reaction center and as such stabilizes electron deficient carbocations. An electron withdrawing group or EWG draws electrons away from a reaction center.

Do electron withdrawing groups increase reactivity?
Why is toluene ortho para directing?
Is CCl3 electron withdrawing?
Is och3 electron withdrawing?
Is CN a withdrawing group?
Which is more electronegative no2 or F?
In organic that effect is inductive effect and in NO2 there is resonance stabilising factor. However coming to electronegativity, flourine is the most electronegative elemnet known yet. So definitely flourine is more electronegative.
