Why can't copper displace zinc from its salt solution ?

Copper is less reactive than zinc and so placed below zinc in the reactivity series of metals. A less reactive metal cannot displace a more reactive metal from its salt solution. Hence, copper cannot displace zinc from its salt solution. for example, when a piece of copper is added to zinc sulphate solution, no reaction takes place.

becoz it is weak than zinc and lies below zinc in the reactivity table

bcz copper is less reactive than zinc thats why copper cant displace zinc from its salt solution

Because always a more reactive metal replaces a less reactive metal.
