    Hmmm. I think that you can discard 3, as it wouldn't participate in the reaction. However 1 and 2 are both to an extent correct, do you think that the enthalpy change is so small that an increase in temperature wouldn't affect it that much? I'm not really sure though to be honest.

    Oh yeah! I didn't notice that the enthalpy change was so small! Fair point!

    The first 3 would all increase the amount of ethanol in the equilibrium mixture.

    In the 3rd one the NaOH would react with the ethanoic acid converting it to ethanoate so the concentration of the acid will drop
