a) The optically active acid will react with d and l forms of alcohol present in the racemie mixture at different rates to form two diastereomers in unequal amounts leading to optical activity of the product.

The answer above is correct as the acid form will be same nd have equal chiral carbon nd will be optically active

The enatiomerically pure acid or optically active acid will react with both the forms (d and l) of the alcohol in the racemic mixture to form isomeric pair of esters. In each isomer the configuration of the chiral center(carbon) remains the same , so the mixture will be optically active.
