    Which one of these alkyl halides forms the most stable carbocation in a E1 reaction?

    Not II because it has an even number of delocalized electron pairs. Isn't I, IV and V the same?

    IV(four) by resonance stabilization. Like Studiot asked, are you doing homework or studying for some test?
