(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The given set of chemical equations to be determined as a combination reaction, a decomposition reaction or a combustion reaction.

Concept Introduction:

A chemical reaction is a process where one or more substances called reactants are converted to one or more different substances called products.  The substances considered can either be element or compound.

Combination reaction is a reaction in which a single product is formed from two or more reactants.

Decomposition reaction is a reaction in which two or more products are obtained from a single reactant.  Decomposition reaction is essentially opposite of combination reaction.

Combustion reaction is a reaction in which burning of substance takes place in presence of oxygen.  Oxygen is supplied in excess even though the chemical equation for the combustion reaction is balanced.  When compound containing carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms is burnt in presence of oxygen, the products formed are carbon dioxide and water.

To determine: The given set of reactions as a combination reaction, a decomposition reaction or a combustion reaction.
