If the concentration of reactant molecules is increased, there will be more collisions between molecules in any given time.

b? There is nothing to suggest that the average kinetic energy increases. You'd have to heat it up to do that.

c? There's nothing to suggest that the activation energy increases. That will always be constant.

d? The order of reaction is based on the number of molecules that must collide. This will not change.
