Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 51SP :

Step 1:

A reactive intermediate is a highly reactive, high energy molecule that generates in a chemical reaction and quickly converts to more stable molecule.

A carbene is a molecule containing a neutral carbon atom with a valence of two and two unshared valence electrons. The general formula of carbene is R=C:
