(a) $$(CH_3)_3 C.C^{+}H_2$$

(b) $$(CH_3)_3\; C^{+}$$

(c) $$CH_3 CH_2C^{+}H_2$$

(d) $$CH_3 C^{+}HCH_2CH_3$$

##### Solution :-

$$(CH_3)_3\;C^{+}$$is a tertiary carbocation. A tertiary carbocation is the most stable carbocation due to the electron releasing effect of three methyl groups. An increased + I effect by three methyl groups stabilizes the positive charge on the carbocation. Hyperconjugation and resonance energy is also responsible for the stability of tertiary carbocations.
