Bulk silver metal will not react in HCl solution. They do not react unless the silver is in a nano-particulate form.

#### Explanation:

Silver is below hydrogen in the activity series (redox), and therefore silver metal does not react with H+ to produce silver ions and hydrogen gas. Since there is no Ag+ formed, then there can be no precipitate of white AgCl either.
