In the given compounds the halide groups are same. In these cases, the boiling point depends on the bulkiness of the alkyl group. The boiling point increases with an increase in the chain length. Also, the boiling point decreases with an increase in branching.

So the order is :-    1- Chlorobutane  >  1- Chloropropane  >  Isopropyl Chloride
