The correct statement regarding the basicity of arylamines is:

A
Arylamines are generally less basic than alkylamines because the nitrogen lone-pair electrons are delocalized by interaction with the aromatic ring π electron system

Solution

The correct option is A Arylamines are generally less basic than alkylamines because the nitrogen lone-pair electrons are delocalized by interaction with the aromatic ring π electron system

Lone pair of nitrogen is in conjugation with the benzene ring which decreases the availability of electrons on nitrogen hence the basic strength decreases.
