(b) The slowest step comes last in a reaction mechanism.
(c) The slowest step comes first in a reaction mechanism.
(d) Fast reactions have fewer elementary steps than slow reactions.
(e) Fast reactions have only one elementary step.
(f) Enthalpy of reaction is larger than activation energy.
(g) Enthalpy of reaction is smaller than activation energy.

Which of the following combinations of the above statements is correct?

all are correct

none is correct

(a), (c), and (f) are correct

the more intermediate steps you have in a reaction, the slower this reaction will be.
