Solution

## The correct option is A increase by 27 timesWhen the volume is reduced to one third, the pressure is increased to three times.rate=kP2APB2Let a and b be the initial pressures of A and B2 respectively.After volume change, the pressures of A and B2 are 3a and 3b respectively.r0=ka2b ...... (1)r=k(3a)23b ...... (2)Divide (2) by (1)rr0=k(3a)23bka2b=271Thus, the rate increases 27 times.
