Answer :

The stearic hinderance in alkyl halides increases in the order of 1° < 2° < 3°, the increasing order of reactivity towards SN2 displacement is given as-


3° < 2° < 1°.


The structures are given below:



Hence, the given set of compounds can be arranged in the increasing order of their reactivity towards SN2 displacement as:


2-Bromo-2-methylbutane < 2-Bromo-3-methylbutane < 1-Bromo-3-methylbutane
