Just to clarify for part b, hypothetically, if it were a second order reaction and H2 concentration doubled, then the initial rate would quadruple right?

Well no not necessarily.

If the only reactant was H2 and the reaction was second order, THEN rate would quadruple of H2 was doubled.

But for this particular question, rate would just double since order of H2 is 1. There are two reactants, H2 and I2, each with order of 1. Overall order is 2.
