  1. Hint:
    What are the two half equations?
    Ag^+(aq) + e ==> Ag(s) and
    Cu(s) ==> Cu^+2(aq) + 2e.
    By convention, the anode (negative charge) is shown on the left side of the || salt bridge and the cathode (+ charged) on the right side of the bridge. Technically, I don't think ANY of them represent the equation because standard state conditions would show the aq soln at 1 M. Perhaps the problem does and you just didn't type it in; however, I think the intent of the problem is for you to pick one since "none of the above" is a choice.
    Fpr #2, see my comments at your original post.
