1.  What is rearrangement reaction?

The reactions in which the carbon of the molecule is rearranged to give a structural isomer of the original molecule. These rearrangements can also be considered as a sequence of steps belonging to substitution, additions or elimination reactions. Usually in such reaction atoms or groups shift from one position to another within the molecule resulting in a new molecular structure.
