For $(i) I^-, (ii) Cl^{-}, (iii) Br^{-} $. The increasing order of nuclephilicity would be :

$(a)\;Cl^{-} < Br^- < I^- \\ (b)\;I^{-} < Cl^- < Br^- \\(c)\; Br^{-} < Cl^- < I^- \\ (d)\;I^{-} < Br^- < Cl^- $

Can you answer this question?

In case of different nucleophiles, but present in the same group in the periodic table, then the larger is the atomic mass, higher is nucleophilicity of halide ions is
$ I ^- > Br ^- > Cl^-$
Hence a is the correct answer.
