Q.6. When an element displaces another element from its compound, a  ______  reaction occurs.
Ans. Displacement

Q.7. Those reactions, in which two compounds react by an exchange of ions to form two new compounds, are called ______ reactions.

Ans. Double displacement

Q.8. Precipitation reactions produce ______ salts.

Ans. Insoluble

Q.9. The reduction is the ______ of oxygen or gain of hydrogen.
Ans. Loss

Q.10. The digestion of food in the body is an example of ______ reaction.

Ans. Decomposition reaction

Q.11. The addition of oxygen to a substance is called ______.

Ans. Oxidation

Q.12. When calcium carbonate is heated, it decomposes to give ______ and ______.

Ans. CaO(s) and CO2 (g)

Q.13. Complete the missing components/variables given as x and y in the following reactions:
(a) Pb (NO3)2 (aq) + 2KI (aq) → Pbl2 (x) + 2KNO3 (y)

Ans. x → (s); y → (aq)
(b) Cu (s) + 2AgNO3 (aq) → Cu (NO3)2 (aq) + x (s)

Ans. x → 2Ag

True or False

Q.1. The number of atoms of each element is conserved in any chemical reaction.

Explanation: The law of conservation of mass applies in all chemical equations. This means that the number of atoms of products present is conserved in the number of atoms of reactants.

Q.2. Oxidation is the loss of electrons from a substance.
Explanation: Oxidation is a reaction that removes an electron from a substance.

Q.3. Reduction is the gain of electrons by a substance.
Ans. True

Explanation: The gain of electrons is called reduction. Because any loss of electrons by one substance must be accompanied by a gain in electrons by something else, oxidation and reduction always occur together.

Q.4. A complete chemical equation represents the reactants, products and their physical states symbolically.
Ans. True

Explanation: A chemical equation is the symbolic representation of a chemical reaction in the form of symbols and formulae, wherein the reactant entities are given on the left-hand side and the product entities on the right-hand side.

Q.5. A magnesium ribbon burns with a dazzling flame in the air (oxygen) and changes into a white substance, magnesium oxide.
Ans. True

Explanation: When magnesium ribbon is burnt in the air that is combustion reaction of the magnesium metal. On burning in the presence of oxygen magnesium gives white colour magnesium oxide. Here, magnesium metal is getting oxidized into magnesium ion.

Q.6. Rusting is a double decomposition reaction.
Ans. False

Q.7. The reaction between nitrogen and hydrogen to give ammonia is an example of a combination reaction.
Ans. True

Explanation: When hydrogen gas combines with nitrogen to form Ammonia.
The following chemical reaction will take place:
Our equilibrium reaction will be N2(g) + 3H2(g) ⇔ 2NH3(g) + Heat. 

In this case, Hydrogen and nitrogen react together to form ammonia.

Q.8. The action of heat on ferrous sulphate is an example of a decomposition reaction.
Ans. True
Explanation: On heating, ferrous sulphate crystals lose water, and anhydrous ferrous sulphate (FeSO4) is formed. So, their colour changes from light green to white. On further heating, anhydrous ferrous sulphate decomposes to form ferric oxide (Fe2O3), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and sulphur trioxide (SO3).

 2FeSO→ ΔFe2O+ SO+ SO3

The reaction for the decomposition of ferrous sulphate is as above.

Q.9. The formation of Na+ and CI- ions from sodium and chlorine is an example of a redox reaction.
Ans. True

Explanation: When sodium metal reacts with chlorine gas to form sodium chloride (NaCl), the sodium metal loses an electron, which is then gained by chlorine.
