We're being asked to determine the statement is not true regarding the reaction below:

A + B → 2 C              rate = k[A]2

Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:

k = rate constant
A & B = reactants
x & y = reactant orders

Let's analyze each given statement:

A. Increasing the temperature would increase the reaction rate.
