There are physical change and chemical change in classifying changes in general chemistry. I thought the nail rust is a kind of chemical change because the nail is oxdized through the chemical reaction. But, topscore says not.

Anyone, please?

I went through kaplan and destroyer twice and thought my knowledge of science is all set to DAT next Saturday. But, when I took topscore I got 18...DAT is almost same format and level as topscore?

could you post the exact question?

i would have thought rusting would be considered an electrochemical reaction.

it is going from iron to iron oxide...

Rusting of nail should be classified as a chemical change...oxygen is binding with the metal to make rust.

Maybe you're not understanding the question. It asks which is INCORRECTLY paired. All of the answer choices are paired with their respective partners.
