On my orgo homework when it says to order the set in order of increasing rate of reaction with HI, does that just mean that the reaction with the more stable intermediate would have the higher rate of reaction? Or the opposite?

Hey there! So yes, the reaction having the most stable intermediate would be faster since it is easier to form. I hope this helps!
