    Answer:

    d. Both Cl and COCI are intermediates.

    Explanation:

    Hey there!

    In this case, according to the given mechanism:

    Cl2 –> 2Cl

    Cl+ CO –> COCl

    COCl + Cl2 –> COCl2 + Cl

    2Cl –> Cl2

    We can see that the overall reaction, omits the presence Cl, COCl and the result is:

    Cl2+CO–>COCl2

    Which means d. Both Cl and COCI are intermediates.

    Regards!
