Part A 

Fe (s) + S (s) Heat FeS (s) 

FeS + 2 HCl (aq) → FeCl2 + H2

Part B 

Fe (s) + S (s)→ Mixture of iron filings and sulphur 

When dilute HCl is added to it 

Fe (s) + S (s) + 2 HCl (aq) → FeCl2 + H2 gas 

Sulphur remains unreacted 

H2S gas formed has a foul smell and on passing through lead acetate solution, it turns the solution black. Hydrogen gas burns with a pop sound.
