A)  Zinc  and  Copper Sulphate Cu SO₄  solution 
     as copper is less electro positive than Zinc.  Zinc is more reactive than copper.
         Cu  :  29        Zn :  30
 Cu SO₄  blue solution + Zn powder  ==>  Cu  (red/brown powder) + Zn SO₄  colorless solution

b)  2 Al  + 6 H Cl    ==>  2  Al Cl₃  + 3 H₂
         Aluminum is more electro positive than Hydrogen...
       So Aluminum is more ready to lose electron..

c)    Ag  +  Cu SO₄   === >    No reaction.... as  Silver is less reactive than copper.
