A

$T_1$ is at a higher temperature than $T_2$ , so more molecules will react to form products.

B

The reaction is exothermic, so increasing kinetic energy decreases the rate of the reaction.

C

$T_2$ is at a higher temperature than $T_1$ , so more molecules will react to form products.

D

The reaction is endothermic, so increasing kinetic energy increases the rate of the reaction.
