Solution

(c) Displacement reaction
When a more reactive element removes another element having less reactivity from its compound, the reaction is termed a displacement reaction.
In the reaction of iron nails with copper sulphate solution, iron displaces copper from the copper sulphate solution.
CuSO4(aq) + Fe(s) → FeSO4(aq) + Cu(s)
