The reaction in which two compounds exchange their ions to form two new compounds is called:

  1. a displacement reaction  
  2. a decomposition reaction  
  3. an isomerization reaction  
  4. a metathesis reaction  


A Metathesis Reaction is actually a Double Displacement Reaction.

So, the reaction in which two compounds exchange ions is a Double Displacement Reaction.
