SN1 & SN2 Reactions

Statement-I:  Nucleophilc substitution reactions of methyl bromide proceed through SN2 mechanism preferably

Statement-II: Hydrolysis of methyl bromide gives a product with inversion in configuration.


Due to least-steric hindrance, CH3Br undergoes alkaline hydrolysis through SN2 mechanism. 

The product formed is methanol which has no chirality, the phrase “inversion in configuration” has no meaning.
