Answer

Cu is more readily oxidized. Ca is more readily oxidized than Al. Magnesium is more readily oxidized than nickel. Sn is more readily oxidized than Ag. Zn is more readily oxidized than Pb. Al is more readily oxidized than Cu.

Work Step by Step

The metal that is more readily oxidized is the more active metal. When we look at the activation series provided, we see that copper is just above mercury in it. So Cu is more readily oxidized than Hg. The metal that is more readily oxidized is the more active metal. When we look at the activation series provided, we see that calcium is above aluminum in it. So Ca is more readily oxidized than Al. The metal that is more readily oxidized is the more active metal. When we look at the activation series provided, we see that calcium is above aluminum in it. So Ca is more readily oxidized than Al. The metal that is more readily oxidized is the more active metal. When we look at the activation series provided, we see that tin is above silver in it. So Sn is more readily oxidized than Ag. The metal that is more readily oxidized is the more active metal. When we look at the activation series provided, we see that zinc is above lead in it. So Zn is more readily oxidized than Pb. The metal that is more readily oxidized is the more active metal. When we look at the activation series provided, we see that aluminum is above copper in it. So Al is more readily oxidized than Cu.
