We're being asked to determine which of the given statements is not true.

For Option A to C:

The reaction quotient, Q, can be calculated like an equilibrium constant with the formula shown below:

Q=productsreactants

Depending on if Q is greater than or less than K our reaction will shift to attain equilibrium by reaching the equilibrium constant K:
