rate law and mechanism

Rate Laws and Mechanisms?

The reaction and rate law for the gas-phase decomposition of dinitrogen pentaoxide are*
2N2O5(g) → 4NO2(g) + O2(g)*
rate = k[N2O5]*
Which of the following are valid mechanisms for the reaction?*

N2O5 ⇌ NO3(g) + NO2(g) [fast]*
NO2(g) + N2O5(g) → 3NO2(g) + O(g) [slow]*
NO3(g) + O(g) → NO2(g) + O2(g) [fast]*

one step collision*

2[N2O5(g) → NO3(g) + NO2(g)] [slow]*
2[NO3(g) → NO2(g) + O(g)] [fast]*
2O(g) → O2(g) [fast]*

2N2O5(g) → N4O10(g) [slow]*
N4O10(g) → 4NO2(g) + O2(g) [fast]*

2N2O5(g) ⇌ 2NO2(g) + N2O3(g) + 3O(g) [fast]*
N2O3(g) + O(g) → 2NO2(g) [slow]*
2O(g) → O2(g) [fast]
