Solution: Based on the reaction profile on the left , how many intermediates are formed in the reaction A ?

Problem

Based on the reaction profile on the left A graph has reaction progress on the x-axis and potential energy on the y-axis (both axes unscaled). The curve rises from the initial state to a two peaks with the first peak higher than the second and then declines to the final state. (A) is the initial state; (B) is the trough between the two peaks, and (C) is the final state, which is lower energy than (A)., how many intermediates are formed in the reaction A ?
