Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The answer is a. 1 only.

The equilibrium constant only reveals the concentrations of the products and reactants when the chemical reaction has come to equilibrium. It only involves the concentrations and therefore has nothing to do with the rate of the reaction or whether energy is absorbed or released.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
