Expert Answer

Step 1

Types of chemical reaction:

  1. Combination reaction
  2. Decomposition reaction
  3. Single replacement reaction
  4. Double-replacement reaction
Step 2
  1. Combination reaction: Here two or more reactants combines to form a single product
  2. Decomposition product: In this type of reaction, one reactant is breakdown into two or more products
  3. Single replacement reaction: This is a type of reaction where more reactive element displaces the less reactive element.
  4. Double- replacement reaction: In this type of reaction, two compounds react in such a way that cations and anions of two reactants interchange their place.
Step 3
