pure zinc metal into a solution of copper(II) sulfate, the zinc will slowly dissolve to produce zinc sulfate solution, and the copper(II) ion of the copper(II) sulfate will be converted to metallic copper. Write the unbalanced equation for this process. (Include states-of-matter under the given conditions in your answer.)

1. Zn(s) + CuSO4(aq) ==>ZnSO4(aq) + Cu(s)
This equation is balanced as is; therefore, I can't write an unbalanced equation and I don't think the person who made up this question can either.
