    The rate of the backward reaction increases

    Explanation:

    It is evident that if the reaction is left to proceed spontaneously, the forward reaction is favored because it results in a decrease in pressure in the system (The total reactants have 5 moles and the products have 3 in total).

    Increasing H₂O concentration is then reaction, therefore, stymies the forward reaction and favors the reserves reaction. This is because the reverse reaction will lead to reduced pressure.
