Aluminium is a highly malleable metal and can be made into foils. So, it can be used to wrap food items. Metals are good conductors of electricity, therefore, they are used for making immersion rods. Copper is less reactive than zinc. Therefore, it cannot displace zinc from its salt solution. Sodium and potassium are highly reactive metals. On exposure to air, they get oxidized. To avoid this they are stored in kerosene.
