Q5-8:
Chlorine reacts vigorously with iron wool to form iron(III)chloride whereas iodine reacts slowly with iron wool forming iron(II)iodide.

 

5. What is the test for chlorine gas?

  • A.   turns damp red litmus paper to blue
  • B.   bleaches damp litmus paper
  • C.   turns damp blue litmus paper to red
  • D.   has a pungent smell
6. Chlorine is more reactive than iodine because the ..
  • A.   outer electron in chlorine is further from the nucleus so more easily given away
  • B.   outer electron in chlorine is closer to the nucleus so more easily given away
  • C.   outer shell in chlorine is further from the nucleus so electrons are attracted in more easily
  • D.   outer shell in chlorine is closer to the nucleus so electrons are attracted in more easily
