I need to understand how to solve these. can someone please help?

1. Which is the most basic?
A. C6H5NH2
B. BrCH2NH2
C. FCH2NH2
D. CH3NH2
E. ClCH2NH2

2. Which of the following is (are) considered terminal functional groups?
I Aldehydes
II Ketones
III Carboxylic acids
IV Esters

A. III only
B. I and III only
C. II and III only

C. II and III only
D. I,III and IV only
E. I, II, III and IV

1) D. Contains the smallest # of electronegative/electron withdrawing groups.

2) B. look in any organic text. carboxylic acids and aldehydes always appear at the end of a molecule and are thus terminal.

i thought for #1 it would be A. C6H5NH2 Aromatic ring with a electron donating group...

For #1, choice D would be correct because the Carbon group is the most electron donating as a result of which decreases acidity the most and therefore will be the most basic right? Is my line of reasoning correct?
