Each of the following questions consists of two statements, I in the left-hand column and II in the right-hand column. For each question, determine whether statement I is true or false and whether statement II is true or false. Select the appropriate answer combination from the choices below. Choices with a filled CE oval denote that statement II is a correct explanation of the true statement I.
|Zinc metal will reduce in solution||
||zinc is a more active metal than copper is.|
Select an Answer
In the activity series, is relatively easy to oxidize
to , while is relatively inactive. Therefore, if metal were placed in a solution containing ions, would be oxidized to ions and would be reduced to metal. Both statements are true, and statement II gives the reason that statement I is correct. The correct answer is therefore true, true, correct explanation.
