# Stability between benzyl free radical and tertiary free radical [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

My teacher told me that the hyperconjugation of 9 alpha hydrogen domintes over resonance (for a carbocation )and so the stability of a tertiary carbocation is more than benzyl carbocations due to exceptional hyperconjugation .

I was convinced to the fact and started applying to the questions but then i got stuck and was confused when i saw the stability order of the following groups of free radical . According to me the order told by my teacher for carbocation should still be valid for free radical .but in the following picture benzyl free radical is ahead of tertiary free radical in terms of stability.
