Answer:

I'd say decomposition reaction.

Explanation:

In a decomposition reaction, a substance splits into smaller molecules.

So here, we got the reaction:

#H_2SO_3(aq)->H_2O(l)+SO_2(g)#

And so, the bigger molecule #(H_2SO_3)# is split into two smaller molecules, water #(H_2O)# and sulfur dioxide #(SO_2)#.
