p-hydroxy benzoic acid less acidic to C6H5COOH but o-hydroxy salicylic acid more than benzoic acid.

Presence of +M directing group decreases acidic character due to increasing -ve charge on carboxylate ion. In salicylic acid exception is due to Intara molecular H-bonding,which stbilizes o-hydroxy benzoate ion.

HCOOH..Formic Acid shows positive Tollen's and Fehling's test..

The attack of NO+ on benzene is faster than NO2+

In case of non-polar medium the formation of NO2+ is the slow step... and in case of polar solvents the removal of proton will be the slowest step in Nitration...
The vant hoff factor in Nitration mixture is ≈ 3.82

In case of Sulphonation the electrophile is SO3
