Solution

The correct option is C Tert-butyl
Stability order of different carbocations is given as
30>20>10>methyl

In tertiary butyl carbocation, the carbon atom is surrounded by 3 methyl groups and thus it will have maximum hyper conjugative structures which gives max. stability when compared to other secondary and primary carbocations
