Which of the following is the strongest base ?

(a) Aliphatic amines are a stronger base than aromatic amines.

The basicity of amines is due to the nitrogen of the amine donating its lone pair of electrons. In aromatic amines, this lone pair is in conjugation(delocalized) with the aromatic ring. While in aliphatic mine this doesn't happen and thus the lone pair is ready to be donated.
