What is the correct order of reactivity of haloalkanes towards dehydrohalogenation? 1-CH3CH2Cl,2-CH3CHClCH3,(CH3)3CCl

According to saytzeff's rule, any alkyl halide which gives a more stable (i.e. highly substituted ) alkene must undergo dehydrohalogenation reaction faster than the one which gives less stable ( less substituted) alkenes.
therefore the reactivity of haloalkenes towards elimination reaction follows the order: Tertiary> secondary> primary
The correct order of reactivity of haloalkanes towards dehydrohalogenation is 1-CH3CH2Cl < 2-CH3CHClCH3 < (CH3)3CCl
