    That the reaction is first order with respect to the bromoalkane and zero order with respect to OH- means that the rate-limiting step involves only one molecule of the bromoalkane and nothing else. Based on the mechanism of this reaction, is there any one of those options that would make sense for? (I ought to know but can't remember, lol.)
