Zn(s) + CuSO4(aq) → Cu(s) + → ZnSO4(aq)

Zinc reacts slowly with copper(II) sulfate, it precipitate copper metal and
the zinc metal was dissolved in the solution of copper sulfate to form zinc
sulfate.

Hopes this helps:)

Zinc is more reactive than copper so zinc displaces copper from copper
sulphate forming zinc sulphate.

Chem. Eqn. -->
*Zn(s) + CuSO4(aq) ---> Cu(s)+ ZnSO4(aq).*

It's a *displacement* as well as *redox *reaction.
Oxidation number of zinc increases from 0 to 2 so it's oxidized.
Oxidation number of copper decreases from 2 to 0 so it's reduced.
