###### Problem Details

Consider the following general reaction:

2 B4A(l) + 2 C2 (g) → 4 A2C (g) + 4 B2 (g),           K c =  0.0596

If you have a reaction mixture that contains 0.725 M concentration of each of these substances, in which direction will the reaction proceed?

A. Q = K; the reaction mixture is at equilibrium

B. Q < K; the reaction will shift towards the reactants

C. Q > K; the reaction will shift towards the products

D. Q > K; the reaction will shift towards the reactants

E. Q < K; the reaction will shift towards the products.
