Obviously, the correct answer is (c), synthesis reaction.


In a synthesis reaction, two or more chemicals are combined to form a new chemical compound.

For example, when we blow a spark in a vessel containing hydrogen and oxygen, both gases combine with each other to form water:

#2 H_2 + O_2 rightarrow 2 H_2O#

Another typical case would be the formation reaction of ammonium chloride from hydrogen chloride and ammonia:

#HCl + NH_3 rightarrow NH_4Cl#.
