(b) SO2(g) + NO2(g) ⇋ SO3(g) + NO(g)

(c) H2(g) + I2(g) ⇋ 2HI(g)

The correct option is : (d) 2C(s) + O2(g) ⇋ 2CO2(g)

Explanation:

Kp and Kc are related by the equation, K= Kc(RT)Δng

when Δng = difference in the no. of moles of products and reactants in the gaseous state.

for 2C(s) + O2(g) ⇋ 2CO2(g)

Δng = 2 - (1) = 1 ≠ 0
