NaOH + CH3CH2Cl->CH3CH2OH + NaCl i know this is Nucleophilic substitution reaction but is this hydrolysis too? There's no reaction with water?? Or is it because it's "aqueous" NaOH

    It's just an SN2 reaction, no hydrolysis

    Alkanes cannot be oxidised that's what i know and i think hakogenoalkanes don't get oxidised so that leaves out B and D

    And A is something that cannot happen because hydration is just adding H so you can't add hydrogen to already containing hydrogens so thgat leaves out A but how C can happen?

    The only reaction is nucleophilic substitution which i've shown above there's no hydrolysis as @aaronq said but C says hydrolysis i'm confused.

    I said there was no hydrolysis in the reaction you posted initially - which isn't the same as the question in the attachment. I think option C is correct

    Yeah it is so halogenoalkahes can be hydrolysed?
