Solution

The correct option is A CH3CH2S>CH3COO
Higher electronegativity means lower nucleophilicity because the role of a nucleophile is to share e. If the atom is more electronegative it is less willing to share its e. In the polar protic solvent like ethanol CH3COO participating in hydrogen bonding, the nucleophile is considerably less reactive than CH3CH2S.
