1) Most reactive metal is K and least reactive metal is Au. 2) An iron knife kept dipped in blue copper sulphate solution changes to light green because iron replaces copper from copper sulphate and forms iron sulphate. This happens because iron is more reactive than copper. Fe + CuSO4 ——> FeSO4 + Cu
