About This Quiz & Worksheet

A single-displacement reaction, also known as a single-replacement reaction, is a type of chemical reaction in which an element reacts with a compound and takes the place of another element within that compound. This quiz/worksheet combo will help you test your knowledge of these reactions and how to complete them.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments, you'll be tested on:

  • Identifying the correct final equation for the reaction between CI2 and KI
