    Which of the following is more basic than aniline?

    A) Triphenylamine

    B)        \[p-Nitroaniline\]

    C) Benzylamine                 

    D) Diphenylamine

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    Benzyiamine is more basic than aniline. The reason is that in aniline, the lone pair of nitrogen is conjugated with benzene ring so it is not available readily for others. On the other hand in Benzyiamine, nitrogen is not directly attached with ring so lone pairs are not conjugated withring.
