Expert Answer

  1. Transition state is an intermediate state which has more energy than reactants and products. In the given graph, the transition states are B and D as they show high energy.
  2. The formation of A from C is the fastest step as the energy gap from C to B is less.
  3. In general, the slow step is rate determining and limiting step. Here, forma...
