(a) Aluminium is highly malleable and it can be easily beaten in sheets to make its foil for wrapping purposes. It is also soft and does not react with food items. That is why aluminium foils are used . to wrap food items. (b) Immersion rods made up of metallic substances because metals are good conductors of heat and electricity. They get hot very soon on the passage of electric current and warm the water. (c) Copper is less reactive than zinc. So it cannot displace zinc from its solution. (d) Sodium and potassium are highly reactive, so they are stored in kerosene.
