# What is the effect of polar protic solvent on nucleophilicty? [closed]

Question

Attempt:

I could figure out the answer correctly using simple rules governing nucleophilicity . But my doubt is how does polar protic solvent affect nucleophicity. And what would be the answer in case of polar aprotic solvent?. Please help.

$$\ce{I^-} > \ce{Br^-} > \ce{Cl^-} > \ce{F^-}$$
$$\ce{F^-} > \ce{Cl^-} > \ce{Br^-} > \ce{I^-}$$
