For this problem, we have to determine which of the reaction will be the fastest or slowest for each SN1 and SN2 reaction

Recall that when given a substitution reaction, we will use the following two factors to determine the mechanism:

Nucleophile Strength:              SN1 =   WEAK               SN2 = STRONG

Leaving Group Substitution:    SN = 3° > 2°                 SN2 = 0° > 1° > 2°
