EXPERT ANSWER

In this process Cu is in +2 oxidation state on both side so reaction is not reducing niether oxidising . as we know that 15M 10 ml solution is more concentrated than 6M 15 ml solution of Sulphuric acid . as we know that The more the solution of a reactant is diluted, the slower the reaction will occur. So reaction will Increase on adding 15M 10 ml solution
