  • The first reaction (i) is an example of decomposition reaction because KClO 3 is decomposing to form KCl and O 2
  • In the second (ii) and and third (iii) reaction, two reactants are combining to form a single product, so, these are combination reactions .
  • The fourth reaction (iv) is a displacement reaction because Zn is displacing Fe from its salt solution.
