Chemistry: Double Displacement Reaction! Quiz - Quiz

Test Your Knowledge about Double Displacement Reaction using Chemistry Quiz. This reaction is formed as a result of the exchange of bonds between elements in a compound where the more reactive one displaces, the less reactive on. Do you think based on the knowledge you have on the topic, you can pass this quiz? Take this quiz and get to find out!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    2MgI2 + Mn(SO3)2 --> MgSO3 + MnI4 is what type of reaction.

    • A.

      Double Displacement

    • B.

      Single Displacement

    • C.

      Synthesis

    • D.

      Decomposition

    Correct Answer
    A. Double Displacement
    Explanation
    The given reaction involves the exchange of ions between two compounds, resulting in the formation of two new compounds. This type of reaction is known as a double displacement reaction. In this specific reaction, magnesium iodide (2MgI2) reacts with manganese(IV) sulfite (Mn(SO3)2) to form magnesium sulfite (MgSO3) and manganese tetraiodide (MnI4). The cations and anions have switched partners, leading to the formation of two new compounds.

    C + H2 à C3H6 is an example of double displacement.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given reaction, C + H2 à C3H6, is not an example of double displacement. Double displacement reactions involve the exchange of ions or groups between two compounds, resulting in the formation of two new compounds. In this case, the reaction involves the combination of carbon (C) and hydrogen (H2) to form a single compound, C3H6. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

  • 3. 

    Na3PO3 3KOH --> 3NaOH + K3PO4 is an example of _______ _______

    Correct Answer
    double displacement
    Explanation
    The given chemical equation represents a reaction in which the compounds Na3PO3 and 3KOH react to form 3NaOH and K3PO4. This is an example of a double displacement reaction. In a double displacement reaction, the positive and negative ions of two compounds exchange places, resulting in the formation of two new compounds. In this case, the sodium ions from Na3PO3 combine with the hydroxide ions from KOH to form NaOH, while the potassium ions from KOH combine with the phosphate ions from Na3PO3 to form K3PO4.

  • 4. 

    MgCl2 + LiCO3 --> MgCO3 + 2LiCl is an example of single displacement.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is an example of double displacement.

  • 5. 

    2RbNO3 + BeF2 -->: Be(NO3)2 +RbF is an example of what type of reaction?

    • A.

      Single Displacement

    • B.

      Synthesis

    • C.

      Decomposition

    • D.

      Combustion

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. None of the above
    Explanation
    This reaction is an example of a double displacement reaction. In this type of reaction, the cations and anions of two different compounds switch places to form two new compounds. In this case, the cations Rb+ and Be2+ switch places with the anions NO3- and F- to form the new compounds Be(NO3)2 and RbF.
