What is worse 1st degree or 3rd?

There is a charge designed in the term of degrees for guilty to punish them. If we come to judge these degrees then the first degree is more serious as per second 3rd and 4th degree charge. In 4th and 5th degree offenses a person is liable to pay a fine of some dollar amount including jail up to 1 year. But in first and second degree a person will be charged a fine and jail which is very serious as per 4th and 5th degree.
