To better illustrate the answers, the balanced chemical equation are given.
1. Decomposition reaction; H2O2 -> H2 + O2
2. Combination reaction or synthesis; H3PO3 + NH3 -> (NH4)3PO3
3. Single replacement reaction; Mg (s) + ZnCl2 (aq) -> MgCl2 (aq) + Zn (s)
4. Combination reaction or synthesis; S + Fe -> FeS
5. Single replacement reaction; 2Na + O2 -> 2Na2O
CO2 - Carbon dioxide
H2O - water
NaCl - Sodium chloride
Li2CO3 - Lithium carbonate
N2 - Nitrogen gas
CaO - Calcium oxide
Ar - Argon
