    1)

    a)

    Nickel is more reactive.

    b)

    Put a piece of nickel into copper(II) sulphate solution. Displacement occurs to give green nickel(II) ion and reddish brown copper metal.

    Alternative answer:

    Put separately each of a piece of nickel and a piece of copper into 2 cm3 of dilute hydrochloric acid. Nickel reacts slowly with dilute hydrochloric to give colourless bubbles of hydrogen, but copper gives no reaction.

    2)

    a.

    react

    The products are zinc oxide and copper.

    b.

    not react

    c.

    not react

    d.

    not react

    e.

    lithium oxide and calcium

    f.

    iron(III) oxide and lead
