Analyze the slopes and heat capacities of the curve. The heat capacity for liquid is double that of solid. Therefore, the flat line for vaporization should be twice as long as the flat line for fusion. Since liquid has a higher heat capacity, it's rising slope should also be less steep than those of solid and vapor states. C provides the best match.
