The SN1 reaction is a substitution reaction in organic chemistry. "SN" stands for nucleophilic substitution and the "1" represents the fact that the rate-determining step is unimolecular. Thus, the rate equation is often shown as having first-order dependence on electrophile and zero-order dependence on nucleophile. Regarding product we know we get two types of products ie. retention & inversion than

Which of these is correct regarding Sn1 reaction?

A. Both inversion and retention product are formed in same amount

B. Inversion product is slightly less than retention product

C. Retention product is slightly less than inversion product
