The correct statement among the following is:

1. the rate of a first-order reaction does not depend on reactant concentration; the rate of a second-order reaction does depend on reactant concentrations.
2. the half-life of a first-order reaction does not depend on [A]o; the half-life of a second-order reaction does depend on [A]0
3. a first-order reaction can be catalyzed; a second-order reaction cannot be catalyzed.
4. the rate of a first-order reaction does depend on reactant concentrations; the rate of a second-order reaction does not depend on reactant concentrations

The decomposition of phosphine (PH3) on tungsten at low pressure is a first-order reaction. It is because the

(1) rate is proportional to the surface coverage

(2) rate is inversely proportional to the surface coverage

(3) rate is independent of the surface coverage

(4) rate of decomposition is very slow
