Question:

The decreasing order of basicity of the following amines is:

1. $(\mathrm{A})>(\mathrm{C})>(\mathrm{D})>(\mathrm{B})$

2. $(\mathrm{C})>(\mathrm{A})>(\mathrm{B})>(\mathrm{D})$

3. $(\mathrm{B})>(\mathrm{C})>(\mathrm{D})>(\mathrm{A})$

4. $(\mathrm{C})>(\mathrm{B})>(\mathrm{A})>(\mathrm{D})$

Correct Option: , 4

Solution:

Basic strength of amines depends upon availability of lone pair of electrons. Aliphatic amines are more basic than aromatic amines.
