Question :  Choose a displacement reaction. 
a. burning of metals
b. addition of more active metal to a solution of a less active metal compound.
c. extraction of metals.
d. electrolysis
Answer : B
Explanation: Reactions in which atoms or ions move from one compound to other to form new compound are known as Displacement reaction.
A general displacement reaction can be represented using chemical equation as follows:
A + BC → AC + B
Displacement reaction takes place only when ‘A’ is more reactive than B. If ‘B’ is more reactive than ‘A’, then ‘A’ will not displace ‘C’ from ‘BC’ and reaction will not be taken place.
Example: When zinc reacts with hydrochloric acid, it gives hydrogen gas and zinc chloride.
Question : Why are food items packed in aluminium foils? 
Answer :  A protective coating of aluminium oxide (Al2O3) is formed on the surface of the foil which prevents it from getting corroded in the presence of air and water. Hence, food items are saved from getting spoilt when packed in aluminium foils.
Question : What are double displacement reaction? 
Answer : Reactions in which ions are exchanged between two reactants forming new compounds are called double displacement reactions.
AB + CD → AC + BD
These are the reactions in which two different atoms or groups of atoms are displaced by another atoms/groups of atoms.
Example :
i. BaCl2(aq) + Na2SO4(aq) → BaSO4 (s)¯ + 2NaCl (aq)
ii. AgNO3 (aq) + NaCl (aq) → AgCl(s)¯ + NaNO3 (aq)
Such reactions usually occur in ionic compound and are very fast reactions. 
Question : Oil and fat containing food items are flushed with nitrogen. Why? 
Answer : In the presence of oxygen in the air, the fats present in the fatty food are oxidised to compounds which have a bad smell i.e. the food becomes rancid. Flushing with nitrogen cuts off the contact of food with oxygen and protects the food from rancidity.
Question : Write the formula and then balance the following equations. 
a. Butane (C4H10) + Oxygen Carbon dioxide + Water
b. Magnesium + Silver nitrate Magnesium nitrate + Silver
c. Lime water + Carbon dioxide Calcium carbonate + Water
d. Sodium + Water Sodium hydroxide + Hydrogen
e. Calcium carbonate + Water + Carbon dioxide Calcium bicarbonate 
Answer : The formula and balanced equations are:
a. Butane (C4H10) + Oxygen → Carbon dioxide + Water
2C4H10 + 13O2 + → 8CO2 + 10H2O
b. Magnesium + Silver nitrate →Magnesium nitrate + Silver
Mg + 2AgNO3 → Mg(NO3)2 + 2Ag
c. Lime water + Carbon dioxide →Calcium carbonate + Water
Ca(OH)2 + CO2 → CaCO3 + H2O
d. Sodium + Water →Sodium hydroxide + Hydrogen
2Na + 2H2O → 2NaOH + H2
e. Calcium carbonate + Water + Carbon dioxide →Calcium bicarbonate
CaCO3 + H2O + CO2 →Ca(HCO3)2
Question :Write the formula and then balance the following equation.
Red lead oxide →Lead monoxide + Oxygen
Answer : Red lead oxide Lead monoxide + Oxygen
Question : Name the method used to balance a chemical equation. 
Answer :  There are two methods of balancing chemical equation:
1. Hit and Trail Method:
(i)The symbols and formulae of the reactant and products are written as a skeletal equation.
(ii) Any elementary gas (O2, H2, N2 etc.) appearing on either side of the skeletal equation, is written in the atomic state.
(iii)The formula containing the maximum number of atoms is selected to begin the process of balancing. If this method is not convenient, then balancing of the atoms begin with atoms, which appear minimum number of times.
(iv)Atoms of elementary gases are balanced at the last.
(v) When the balancing is complete, the equation is converted to the molecular form.
2. Partial equation method: When equations contain many reactants and products they cannot be balanced by the hit and trial method. They are then balanced by the partial equation method. In this method the overall reaction is assumed to take place through two or more simpler reactions, which can be represented by partial equations. The steps involved are:
(i)The given chemical equation is split into two or more partial equations. 
(ii)Each partial equation is separately balanced by the hit and trial method.
(iii)These balanced partial equations are multiplied with suitable coefficients in order to exactly cancel out those common substances which do not appear in the overall chemical equations.
(iv)The balanced partial equations so obtained, are added to arrive at the balanced chemical equation.
Question : Name the type of reaction :Zinc reacts with sulphuric acid to form zinc sulphate and hydrogen. 
Answer :  Reactions in which atoms or ions move from one compound to other to form new compound are known as Displacement reaction.

Zinc reacts with sulphuric acid to form zinc sulphate and hydrogen this is displacement reaction.

Answer :  1. By painting metal surface with enamel paints.

Answer : . i. a. BaCl2 (aq) + CuSO4 (aq) → BaSO4 (s) + CuCl2 (aq)
Double decomposition reaction
Redox reaction, here Cu is changing into CuO. This is oxidised and oxygen is getting reduced by adding metal to it.
ii. If hydrogen gas is passed over heated material (CuO) the black coating on the surface turns brown as the reaction takes place and copper is obtained.
