Aniline and cyclohexylamine both hane NH2 group and six carbon ring but the difference in basicity lies in a manner that aniline is a weak base then cyclohexylamine because aniline is an aromatic ring, because of the electron-withdrawing effect of the phenyl group aniline is a weak base.The unshared ellectron pair of electron on nitrogen atom is present in conjucation with the benzene ring and becomes less available for protonation because of resonance. So the answer is C
