Answer :

Allyl Chloride, CH2=CH—CH2Cl, is more readily hydrolysed than n-propyl chloride, CH3—CH2—CH2Cl, because of the presence of the ϖ bond which gives the property of resonance stabilization to the CH3—CH2—CH2+ carbocation to be very stable. Due to the formation of carbocation, the molecule undergoes hydrolysis more readily.
