Will there be problems where we have to consider both and compare them?

Are you referencing kinetics vs thermodymanics? If so, I am not sure how that would be formatted.

If you are referring to Kinetics vs Thermodynamics, I think it is just important to understand the concept of activation energy for kinetic reactions and how a lower activation energy will make the reaction run faster albeit with less stable products than thermodynamical controlled reactions. Also, Delta G must be negative for a spontaneous process to occur in the first place.

Consider both Kinetics and Thermodynamics?

If you are talking about kinetics and thermodynamics, I would think that he would specify which one to consider as they both represent separate things.

Probably. He may ask if reaction is expected to be slow or fast and if it is endothermic or exothermic, etc.
