Dear Student,

#I contains lone pair which is tied up by inductive effect of C=O and resonance forms, the other positioned groups are electron donating inductively making N in position I as stronger base hence no resonance results in tying lone pair.

Hence position #I makes stronger base.

Answer is Option (A) I

1st because lone pair is localised
