why alcohols evaporate at different rates?
what is it based on?

Alcohols all come in different strenghts, so depending on their dilution levels some will evaporate quicker than others.

By alcohols, I assum you mean different types of alcohols (eg methanol, ethanol, propanol, etc).
Boiling point generally increases with molecular weight, so as the size (number of carbon atoms ~ molecular weight) of the alcohol increases so does the boiling point.

It depends on the extent of hydrogen bonding within the substance.

It depends on how dense a substance is.
