In two separate experiments equal quantities of an alkyl halide, C4H9Cl were treated at the same temperature with equal volume of 0.1 molar and 0.2 molar solutions of NaOH respectively. In the two experiments, the times taken for the reaction of exactly 50% of the alkyl halide were the same. The most likely structure of halide is:– 

( a ) CH3CH2CH2CH2Cl 

(b) CH3CH(Cl)CH2CH3 

( c ) (CH3)2CHCH2Cl 

(d) (CH3)3CCl
