      Double displacement

    • D.

      Synthesis

    Correct Answer
    C. Double displacement
    Explanation
    This reaction is a double displacement reaction because the cations and anions in the reactants exchange places to form new compounds. The lead (Pb) cation from Pb(NO3)2 combines with the iodide (I) anion from KI to form PbI2, while the potassium (K) cation from KI combines with the nitrate (NO3) anion from Pb(NO3)2 to form KNO3.

    What is the product of neutralization?  

    • A.

      Sugar

    • B.

      Salt

    • C.

      Water

    • D.

      Salt + water

    Correct Answer
    D. Salt + water
    Explanation
    Neutralization is a chemical reaction between an acid and a base, resulting in the formation of a salt and water. In this case, the product of neutralization is salt and water. The acid and base react with each other, causing the formation of a salt compound and water molecules. Therefore, the correct answer is salt + water.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given equation represents a neutralization reaction, not a decomposition reaction. In a neutralization reaction, an acid (H2SO4) reacts with a base (NaOH) to form a salt (Na2SO4) and water (H2O). Decomposition reactions involve the breakdown of a single compound into two or more simpler substances. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In this reaction, magnesium (Mg) reacts with hydrochloric acid (HCl) to form magnesium chloride (MgCl2) and hydrogen gas (H2). This is an example of a single replacement reaction, where one element (in this case, magnesium) replaces another element (hydrogen) in a compound (HCl). Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because it correctly describes a single replacement reaction between iron (II) and copper sulfate. In this reaction, iron (II) replaces copper in copper sulfate, resulting in the formation of iron sulfate and copper. This type of reaction is a common example of a single replacement reaction, where one element replaces another element in a compound.
