Which of the following statements are true?

I. In a spontaneous process, the path between reactants and products is reversible.

II. The reaction of nitrogen atoms to form N2 molecules at 25° C and 1 atm is spontaneous.

III. The melting of a solid is spontaneous above its melting point but nonspontaneous below its melting point.

IV. The condensation of a liquid will be reversible if it occurs at any temperature other than the boiling point at a specified temperature.

V. When a piece of metal is heated to 150° C and added to water, the fact that the water gets hotter is an example of a spontaneous process.
