Does the real DAT make you distinguish between whether ortho is better versus para? The reasoning behind which is that para allows less steric hindrance.

I ask this because Princeton Review teaches that para is better. But, on pg. 326 of Kaplan, it shows that a reaction's percentage for ortho is higher than that of para.

I would appreciate any help.

There are 2 ortho spots, 1 para. The %s maybe 60% ortho, 40% para, but in reality, para is getting the majority (30% left ortho, 30% right ortho, 40% para). Make sense?
