1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Predict the stability order of dihalocarbenes.


2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution

I'm lost. Just give me a hint and I'll see if I can get it figured out.

Dihalocarbenes exist in singlet state. Wiki says that singlet carbenes can be stabilized by electron donating groups as they help in delocalizing the electrons into an empty p-orbital. So why is CF2 the most stable. It has been almost 48 hours since the last post. Why isn't anybody replying?(Maybe it was because I wasn't successful in convincing any one of you that I sincerely attempted this question.)
