1. Why is the answer D and not A?
And what do they mean "against the square of the concentration of a reactant ..?"

hmmmm a very interesting question ...

So you don;t know the answer?

no, I don't know the question!

I'm going to have a guess even though we don't know what's 'in the box'.

The answer is D because the reaction is second order with respect to the reactant in question and therefore is squared in the rate equation.

I still don't get it.

Aha, an image has appeared ...

D is a straight line which shows direct proportionality between rate and the concept on the other axis.

This is only possible if

rate = k x [A]2

or

rate = k[A][ B]
