A plot of 1/concentration of A (M-1) vs time (min) gave a straight line with the following formula: y = 0.20x + 2.0. Which of the following is the correct expression for the rate law? Assume a =1.

a) Rate = 0.2 M-1 min-1

b) Rate = 0.2 M-1 min-1 [A]

c) Rate = -0.2 M-1 min-1 [A]

d) Rate = 0.2 M-1 min-1 [A]2

e) Rate = -0.2 M-1 min-1 [A]2
