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.
Based on the activity series, which one of the reactions below will occur?
A) Pb(s) + Nil2(aq) → Pbl2 (aq) + Ni(s)
B) SnBr2(aq) + Cu(s) → CuBQ(aq) + Sn(s)
C) Fe(s) + ZnCl2(aq)→ FeCl2(aq) + Zn(s)
D) Mn(s) + NiCl2(aq) → MnCl2(aq) + Ni(s)
E) None of the reactions will occur
