    ...........==> PF5 AsCl3
    In a double displacement, + of one goes with - of the other, then - of other goes with + of first. Here is how it works.
    P(the +) must have started with - of the other (Cl3) and that is PCl3. Then As(+) must have started with F(-) and that is AsF5. The reaction is
    PCl3 + AsF5 ==> PF5 + AsCl3
