Three electrolytic cells A,B,C containing solutions of ZnSO4, AgNO3 and CuSO4, respectively are connected in series. A steady current of 1.5 amperes was passed through them until 1.45 g of silver deposited at the cathode of cell B. How long did the current flow? What mass of copper and zinc were deposited?

Following reactions occur at cathode during the electrolysis of aqueous sodium chloride solution:

Na+(aq) + e ⟶ Na (s) E0 =  2.71 V

H+(aq) + e ⟶ `1/2`  H2 (g) E0 = 0.00 V

On the basis of their standard reduction electrode potential (E0) values, which reaction is feasible at the cathode and why?
