**Hint:**Cell reaction is the overall cell reaction of an electrochemical cell. Equilibrium constant is the value of the reaction quotient at a state where no further change occurs in the chemical reaction (equilibrium state).

**Complete step by step answer:**

-Electric potential in volt of a cell is related by coulomb, which is a unit of measurement of current in Joule. In an electrochemical cell, we require a relation of coulomb with the charge of one mole of electrons. We get this relation by multiplying the charge on the electron by the Avogadro’s Number. This result gives a defined quantity called Faraday $\left( {\text{F}} \right)$, and it is considered as the charge transferred in an electrochemical cell.

-$\Delta {\text{G}}$ is called free energy change, and it is the maximum amount of which can be performed in an electrochemical reaction.

-There is a relationship between the free energy change, and the cell potential of the electrochemical cell in standard state. It is given by $\Delta G^\circ = - {\text{nFE}}_{{\text{cell}}}^o{\text{ }}..........{\text{(1)}}$,

where, $\Delta G^\circ $ is the change in free energy in standard state,

${\text{n}}$ is the number of moles transferred,

${\text{F}}$ is the charge in one Faraday, which has a constant value of ${\text{96500 C}}$,

${\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}^o$ is the standard cell potential of the electrochemical cell.

And, the negative sign indicates the spontaneous reaction.

-Given equation is: $F{e^{3 + }}_{\left( {{\text{aq}}} \right)} + 2{I^{ - 1}}_{\left( {{\text{aq}}} \right)} \to F{e^{2 + }}_{\left( {{\text{aq}}} \right)} + {I_2}_{\left( s \right)}$

${\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}^o$ is given $0 \cdot 236{\text{ V}}$. Then using equation ${\text{(1)}}$:

$\Delta G^\circ = - {\text{nFE}}_{{\text{cell}}}^o$

$ \Rightarrow \Delta G^\circ = - 2 \times 0 \cdot 236 \times 96500$

$ \Rightarrow \Delta G^\circ = - 45548{\text{ J }}.........{\text{(2)}}$

-Now, the equilibrium constant ${K_{\text{C}}}$ is related with $\Delta G^\circ = - \ln {K_{\text{C}}}{\text{RT}}$

where, ${K_{\text{C}}}$ is the equilibrium constant,

${\text{R}}$ is the Universal Gas Constant having constant value $8 \cdot 314{\text{ J }}{{\text{K}}^{ - 1}}{\text{mo}}{{\text{l}}^{ - 1}}$

And, ${\text{T}}$ is the temperature which is given as ${\text{298 K}}$.

Or, ${\text{ln}}{{\text{K}}_{\text{C}}} = \dfrac{{ - \Delta G^\circ }}{{{\text{RT}}}}{\text{ }}..........{\text{(3)}}$

Putting the value of ${K_{\text{C}}}{\text{, R, }}\Delta {\text{G}}^\circ {\text{ and T}}$ in equation (3), we get,

$ \Rightarrow {\text{ln}}{{\text{K}}_{\text{C}}} = \dfrac{{45548}}{{8 \cdot 314 \times 298}}$

Converting the ${\text{ln to log}}$ , we get,

$ \Rightarrow {\text{log }}{{\text{K}}_{\text{C}}} = \dfrac{{45548}}{{8 \cdot 314 \times 298 \times 2 \cdot 303}}$

$ \Rightarrow {\text{log }}{{\text{K}}_{\text{C}}} = {\text{7}} \cdot {\text{9854}}$

$ \Rightarrow {{\text{K}}_{\text{C}}} = {\text{antilog 7}} \cdot {\text{9854}}$

$ \Rightarrow {{\text{K}}_{\text{C}}} = 9 \cdot 68 \times {10^7}$

**Hence, option (d) is the correct answer of equilibrium constant.**

**Note:**${\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}^o$, and ${{\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}}$ are not same. ${\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}^o$ is the cell potential at standard conditions, where the concentration of the reactants is ${\text{1 M}}$, where ${\text{M}}$ is the Molarity. ${{\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}}$ is in non-standard conditions. ${{\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}}$ can be calculated using ${\text{E}}_{{\text{cell}}}^o$ in the Nernst equation.
