Given the following sets of reactions, which (if any) will not undergo a reaction?

I.    Pt(s) + KNO3(aq) →

II.   Ag(s) + Ni(NO3)2(aq) →

III.  Ca(s) + Zn(NO3)2(aq) →

IV. Fe(s) + Sn2+(aq) → 

V.  Ba2+(aq) + Cu2+(aq) →

A. I and II only

B. II, III, and IV only

C. III and IV only

D. II and V 

E. I, II, and V only


Using the concept of activity series, determine which among the given reactions will not proceed.

Recall that the activity series gives us the relative reactivities of metals to oxidation: metals higher in the activity series are more reactive to oxidation and vice-versa.
