### Pre-Equilibrium Approach

Hey all! Can someone explain to me how I am supposed to know when to use this approach? I understand that the main aspect hinting towards using it is when the intermediate is being used up initially, but how do we assume that? Is it mentioned in the question? Thanks in advance.

You will be asked explicitly to use pre-equilibrium approach in the exams.
