Answer:

# "Product"=Ni(NO_3)_2+Cu#

Explanation:

Ni is placed below in the Standard reduction potential series as shown in the table below.This means in aqueous medium Ni(s) atom reduces blue colored #Cu^{2+)(aq)# to metallic reddish Cu and it self oxidized to light green #Ni^(2+)# and colorless #NO_3^-#ions remain as spectators i n solution.

#Ni(s)+Cu(NO_3)_2=Ni(NO_3)_2+Cu#
