  2. Ans is –
    (Hydrogen Sulphide)
    Silver is a fairly
    Stable metal and under normal circumstances does not corrode quickly. However,it is particularly susceptible to the effects of the sulfide radical. However,when exposed to air silver reacts with Hydrogen sulphide in the atmosphere, especially in marine environment, and readily forms a surface tarnish of silver sulphide.
