How will an increase in temperature affect ΔG?

A) ΔG will decrease if the mass-action ratio is greater than 1 and increase if the mass-action ratio is less than 1, and will not change if the mass-action ratio is equal to 1.

B) ΔG will not change

C) ΔG will increase

D) ΔG will decrease

E) ΔG will increase if the mass-action ratio is greater than 1 and decrease if the mass-action ratio is less than 1, and will not change if the mass-action ratio is equal to 1.
