Multiple Choice

Acrylonitrile (C­3H3N) is the starting material for many synthetic carpets and fabrics. It is produced by the following reaction: 

2 C3H6 (g) + 2 NH3 (g) + 3 O2 (g)  → 2 C3H3N (g) + 6 H2O (g)

If 12.0 g C3H6, 10.0 g NH­3, and 5.0 g O2 react, what mass of acrylonitrile can be produced, assuming 100% yield?
