Hi Student
Alkyl Amine is more basic than ammonia because of the +I effect of the Alkyl group present. It donates its electron cloud to the nitrogen group therefore nitrogen has a greater tendency to donate it lone pair of electrons. This makes it more basic than ammonia where such a positive inductive effect is absent.
