$\ce{CaO{(s)} + H2O(l) -> Ca(OH)2(aq)}$
This reaction can be classified as:
(A) Combination reaction
(B) Exothermic reaction
(C) Endothermic reaction
(D) Oxidation reaction

Options

• (A) and (C)

• (C) and (D)

• (A), (C) and (D)

• (A) and (B)

Solution

When calcium oxide reacts with water it produces slaked lime and a huge amount of heat is released, this reaction can be classified as a combination reaction.

Hence, the correct answer is (A) and (B).
