Answer to Question #31950 in Organic Chemistry for Sujay Sahoo

Question #31950
Which of the following is the strongest base?
1. iodide anion
2. fluoride anion
3. bromide anion
4. chloride anion
5. water

I thought the answer is (5) water, but the answer key says (2) fluoride anion. Could you explain the reasoning here. Water pka is about 15 while HF pka is about 4, which makes water the stronger base correct?
