    They might...there are some real low lives on this forum. I've been cruising it for almost a year and have witnessed at least a half dozen tattletails. Nobody likes tattletails!

    Draw it out and reword it as your own question with the purpose of understanding it better, then post the screenshot.

    I'm reviving this thread. Help me out please! The answer states that there are two singlets in:

    B. 1,4-Dimethoxybenzene

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1,4-Dimethoxybenzene


    But wouldn't there also be two singlets in another answer choice:
    D. Acetone ?

    Wouldn't acetone give 2 singlets as well? Or is it because there's symmetry, so only one H singlet is shown since they overlap? And 1,4 dimethoxybenzene shows two singlets because one from the aromatic H and one from the methoxy H? The other methoxy H and aromatic H's are equivalent so would just overlap, leading to only two visible singlets? Am I correct? :idea:

    Yup, acetone should give only one singlet I think. All 6 H's are equivalent.

    I think your reasoning is correct for 1,4-dmb as well.
