Is Benzcne same as 1,3,5-Cyclohexatriene ?


In 1,3,5-Cyclohexatriene, there are three >C=C< (double bond ) having bond length 134 pm and three C-C (single bond) having bond length 154 pm, whereas in benzene all the six C-C bonds have same bond length 139 pm. Due to that fact 1,3,5-Cyclohexatriene give addition reaction while benzene does not. Thus benzene is not same as  1, 3,5-cyclohexatriene.
