Answer:

Is there a question here? We can write the stoichiometric equation.....

Explanation:

#ZnSO_4(aq) + BaCl_2(aq) rarr ZnCl_2(aq) + BaSO_4(s)darr#

Most sulfates are soluble. Barium sulfate is quite insoluble in aqueous solution. You must simply know this experimental result.......

Most halides are soluble (the exceptions....#AgCl#, #Hg_2Cl_2, PbCl_2#). The given reaction is a so-called #"partner-exchange"# or #"methathesis"# reaction, that is driven to the right by the insolubility of one of the products..
