A
Free radical fluorination
loader
B
Sandmeyer's reaction
loader
C
Finkelstein reaction
loader
D
Swarts reaction
loader

Solution

The correct option is C Swarts reaction
The synthesis of alkyl fluorides is best accomplished by Swarts reaction.
Alkyl bromides or alkyl chlorides are heated in presence of metallifluorides such as $$AgF, CoF_2, SbF_5   or  Hg_2F_2$$ to obtain alkyl fluorides.
$$CH_3-Cl + AgF  \rightarrow CH_3-F + AgCl$$
