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

    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.

    Your go!

    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]
