value of equilibrium constant

What are the factors that can influence the value of the equilibrium constant? Why is d) in the question true?

The value of the equilibrium constant is only affected by a change in temperature. However, the position of equilibrium itself (i.e. the state when both reactants and products are present in concentrations that tend not to change over time) is affected by many factors. These include change in concentration of any reactant or product, and change in the system's temperature or pressure.

d) in the question is true based on Le Chatelier's principle. If the concentration of reactants is higher than the concentration of the products to begin with, the forward reaction will be favored, thus forming more products.
