(a) No reaction will take place because copper is very less reactive. (b) Iron being more reactive than copper will replace copper from its solution and brown coating of copper is deposited on the iron nails. Also, the blue colour turns green. Iron + Copper sulphate (solution) → Iron sulphate (solution) + Copper
