    if the concentration of product and reactant are equal, and the chemical process is reversable, then there is no preference to create product or reactant. So the reaction will be in equilibrium

    So it would be #4 @JamesWolf

    4 or 5 4 is correct. that is correct in equilibrium. concentration of the reactant and product reach their equilibrium values and those values stay constant if nothing else change. but 5 is also corect due to the reaction continues with the same speed to both directions.... i would go with 5

    It is generally considered that the forward and reverse reactions both continue but at the same rate, so that "net reaction" stops which explains why 4 would be right, but not the microreactions which is why 5 is correct.
