Dear jk mallikarjuna arjun,

You see arjun that in Propyl Carbocation,there are two electron releasing groups that stbilise the positive charge on the carbon atom !

 

But in the case of Ethyl Carbocation there is only one electron releasing group which stabilises the positive charge on the carbocation & therefore Propyl Carbocation is more stble than Ethyl Carbocation !

 

All the Very Best & Good Luck to you ...

Hope this helped you immensely...
