(b) Are there any examples of a three-phase equilibrium in this phase diagram?



Yes, there is a eutectic at 700 degrees C and 60 at. % Sc.

Yes, there is a eutectoid at 800 degrees C and 22 at. % Sc.

Yes, there is a peritectic at 800 degrees C and 22 at. % Sc.

No, there are no three-phase equilibrium points in this diagram.
