Expert Answer:

Dear Student
 Answer is c
An example of esterification reaction is as follows:

Ethanoic acid reacts with ethanol in the presence of concentrated sulphuric acid as a catalyst to produce the ester, ethyl ethanoate. The reaction is slow and reversible. To reduce the chances of the reverse reaction happening, the ester is distilled off as soon as it is formed.

So, all the above options except c are correct.
We hope that clarifies your query.
