Ch.11 #1(c)

Can someone explain to me why the answer for 11.1c is false. Why is the equilibrium constant not affected if the pressure of the reactant is higher? If the pressure of the reactant is higher, doesn't that mean temperature is also higher?

Just because the pressure is higher it doesn't mean the temperature increased. The volume of the container could have decreased thus increasing the pressure while temperature remains the same. The pressure will simply affect the rate of the reaction, not how much product or reactants there are.
