A metal ‘M’ is st

Answer :

(A) Sodium

(B) Sodium Oxide Na2O


(C) Sodium metal is kept in kerosene oil to prevent it from coming in contact with oxygen and moisture. If this happens, it will react with the moisture present in air and forms Sodium hydroxide which is a highly exothermic reaction.

2Na(s) + 2H2O(l) 2NaOH(aq) + H2(g) + heat energy

(d) Sodium oxide reacts with hydrochloric acid to produce sodium chloride and water.

Na2O + 2HCl 2NaCl + H2O

(e) (i) 4Na + O2 2Na2O

(ii) 2Na + 2H2O 2NaOH + H2

(iii) Na2O + 2HCl H2O + 2NaCl





(C)Calcium ion and oxygen ion
