Solution

The correct option is B

Tert-butyl


Always remember,

More the hyperconjugative forms, more the stability.

Now,

We know that the stabilities of carbocation ions is in the order: 3>2>1>CH3. This is due to a decrease in hyper-conjugative stabilization in the order.

Hyperconjugation is used for explaining stability of tert-butyl.
