    Commutative Property is just the changing of order ab = ba so not that either! Distributive Property is like dealing something out such as the 5 to (x -3) and the 4 to (6+1) so yes the distributive property it is Identity is either adding 0 to something or multiplying by 1, you keep the identity of what you had. So C. is the answer, hope it helped!
