Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


Ok I know that Cl- is a very weak base so I know it is not that one for sure. I want to say that the answer is NH2- because it is the most likely to receive a proton as compared to the others but can someone please let me know if my thought process is right here?

How did you determine that NH2- was more likely to receive a proton than OH-?

I assume that NH2- is actually NH2- ?
