In a polar aprotic solvent, nucleophilicity increases up a column of the periodic table as there is no hydrogen bonding between the solvent and nucleophile; in this case nucleophilicity mirrors basicity.
  1. DMSO is apolar aprotic solvent.
If useful please approve it.

A option is correct because in an aprotic solvent hydrogen should not be connected directly with electronegative element.
