Choose the correct option below based on the following statement:

When we increase the temperature of a reaction the rate of reaction increases because of:

(i) Decreasing the potential energy of collision,
(ii) Increasing frequency of collisions,
(iii) Increasing kinetic energy of collision $\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;(i)\;only\\(b)\;(iii)\;only\\(c)\;(ii)\;and\;(iii)\\(d)\;(i),(ii),(iii)\end{array}$

As temperature increases molecular heat up and hence kinetic energy increases.As kinetic energy of molecules increases their libration increases so frequency of collisions increases.
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
