Solution

The correct option is C CH3Cl
Since, we know that primary halides show inversion during SN2 reaction more than secondary while secondary show mare than tertiary. Therefore, CH3Cl(1o halide) show stereochemical inversion more in comparision to (CH3)3CCl(3o halide), (CH3)2CHCl(2o halide) and (C2H5)2CHCl(2o halide).
