    option B Acid anahydride>ester>amide Explanation:- Carbon in anhydride is more partially positively charges as compared to in ester. This is because of cross conjugation of the Oxygen atom. This allows more nucleophiles to attack that carbon. Amides are less reactive than are esters due to the fact that nitrogen is more willing to donate its electrons than is oxygen.
