The basicity of aniline is weaker in comparison to that of methyl amine due to A. hyperconjugative effect of Me-group in MeNH2 B. resonance effect of phenyl group in aniline C. lower molecular weight of methyl amine as compared to that of aniline D. resonance effect of –NH2 group in MeNH2

The lone pair of electrons, present in N-atom inanilineinvolve in ring resonance. So it is less basic thanmethyl amine

The benzene ring in aniline is electron withdrawing in nature. It withdraws the lone pair of electrons of the nitrogen and hence, is less basic. This makes the nitrogen to donate the electron more easily in methyl amine than in aniline. Hence, aniline is less basic than methyl amine.
