Substitution vs elimination

    Why do poor nucleophiles undergo no reaction with primary unhindered and primary branched haloalkane?

    Why do 2°& 3°haloalkanes undergo only E2 reaction with strongly basic unhindered nucleophiles like RO-, OH-, R2N-, H2N-, LDA & Me3CO-? Please explain.

    poor nucleophile undergoes no reaction as they are not much capable of breaking the bond and make the stable transition state....
    in 2 and 3 degree reactants the stable products froms when treated with strong base..
    you have to remember it as facts..
