1) The reaction: A + 3B = D + F was studied and the following mechanism was finally determined

A+B=C (fast)
C+B=D+E (slow)
E+B=F (very fast)

Which step has the largest activation energy?

I chose the second step because it is slow and should have the most energy.

Is this correct?

    That's what I would choose
