                           What do you think metal M is?
                           What could b gas X2
                           Name the metal salt MX
                           Name nay two salt solution which on mixing together can produce a precipitate of salt MX
                           What type of chemical reaction takes place when salt MX is exposed to light? Write the equation of reaction.

    • In the table, the reactants change and form given products. However while changing from reactants to products the change in color takes place. It is very important for students to know which color is changed and which new color is formed.
