A. A combination reaction is when two compounds combine to form a single one. A displacement reaction would cause one element to push out or displace another element. And take its place. This type of chemical reaction would be shown as A+ BC= B + AC. A decomposition reaction would be one where the compound is broken into smaller pieces.

This type of chemical reaction would be shown as AB= A + B. These can require energy to create this break.A precipitation reaction is when a solid is created from two liquids. An example would be mixing silver nitrate with sodium chloride and ending with a solid.
