Question:

Consider nucleophilic substitution reactions of alkylhalides, where a moderately reactive nucleophile, which of the following sets of conditions is the S,2 mechanism most likely predominant?

a. primary substrate, acidic-conditions

b. secondary substrate, acidic conditions

c. tertiary substrate, acidic conditions

d. secondary substrate, basic conditions

e. cannot differentiate
