Analyzing each statement:

(a) X is a product of the reaction.

• as time goes by the concentration of [X] increases

• X is being produced

The statement is TRUE.


(b) The rate of the reaction remains the same as time progresses.

• the progress of the reaction is not linear

• amount of X produced is not constant

The statement is FALSE.


(c) The average rate between points 1 and 2 is greater than the average rate between points 1 and 3.
