Friedel-crafts reaction is an electrophile substitution reaction and presence of an electron-releasing substituent like Methyl makes the benzene nucleus more reactive towards such reaction
The nitro-benzenehas electron withdrawing groups which makes it less reactive than benzene.

Thus toluene is most reactive among the given.

Benzene reacts with methyl chloride in presence of anhydrous aluminium chloride to give toluene. Benzene is treated with methyl chloride in presence of anhydrous AlCl3 to give toulene. H-atom of benzene is replaced by CH3 in this reaction. HCl is formed as byproduct in this reaction.
