    Ahh, I don't know how to solve these questions! I know, I'm so dumb.
    a) Would it be feasible to store a solution of copper sulfate in a container made of metallic zinc? Explain.
    b) Would it be feasible to store a solution of copper sulphate in a container made of metallic silver? Explain.
    c) Would you expact jewlery made from an alloy of silver and copper to tarnish (oxidize) in a lab where fumes of bromine are present? Explain.

    I suggest you look up the reactivity series of metals and how displacement reactions work. From there the answer should be fairly obvious.
