Solution

The correct option is A


A) Nucleophiles are those substances which can donate a pair of electrons. These can be neutral or negative. The nucleophilic power depends on the tendency of species to donate electron. This is more, when an electron pushing group (+I group) is present. Among the alkyl groups, those having higher number of C-atoms will push more, hence ethyl I> methyl.

C2H5(+I)CH5+CH2(I)SH, CH3(+I)O||CO,CH3(+I) NH2
