**Sažetak**

Pi-electron energies and bond orders of benzenoid hydrocarbons with up to five fused hexagons have been considered by the simple Bond Orbital Resonance Theory (BORT) approach. The corresponding ground states were determined according to four BORT models. In the first three models a diagonalisation of the Huckel-type Hamiltonian was performed in the bases of Kekule of Kekule and mono-Claus and of Kekule and Claus resonance structures, respectively. In the fourth model a simple PORT ansatz was used. According to this ansatz, the ground state is a linear combination of the positive Kekule structures, all with equal coefficients. It was shown that pi-electron energies and bond orders obtained by these models correlate much better with the PPP energies and bond orders than with the Huckel energies and bond orders. This indicates that a simple BORT approach is quite reliable in predicting the more sophisticated PPP results. Concerning the relative performance of the four BORT models, the best results were obtained with the BORT ansatz. The performance deteriorates with the expansion of the basis set. This is attributed to the fact that in these models the improvement of the basis set is not accompanied with the corresponding improvement of the Hamiltonian. Comparing the BORT-ansatz bond orders with the Pauling bond orders, it was shown that BORT-ansatz bond orders correlate much better with the PPP bond orders.
