to predict correctly relate the reaction with given rate law

Which one of the following correctly depicts the reaction below?

(see attached for reaction)

Mechanism Rate Law Stereochemistry
A)SN1 rate = k[(S)-2-bromobutane] not stereospecific,
but more inversion
than retention of
configuration

B) SN1 rate = k[(S)-2-bromobutane][NaSCH3] stereospecific,
retention of
configuration

C) SN2 rate = k[(S)-2-bromobutane] not stereospecific
but more inversion
than retention of
configuration

D) SN2 rate = k[(S)-2-bromobutane][NaSCH3] stereospecific
inversion of
configuration
