Rate of SN1 reaction is directly proportional to the stability of carbocation formed after removal of halogen. We know that stability of carbocation is 3°>2°>1°> -CH3.
The carbocation formed from above pair will be
Since, 2° carbocation is more stable than 1°. Therefore, CH3− CH(Br)− CH3 would undergo SN1 reaction faster.
