  1. depend on which element is more reactive silver or lead...

    as far as i remember, silver is the least reactive among copper, lead and zinc...so the silver ring will remain intact when dropped in lead nitrate solution because, silver will not react with the nitrate (displacement reaction)

    hope that helps
