Write the net ionic equation for the reaction between Fe and Pt2+. If no reaction occurs, write the reactants, the reactant arrow, and NR; do not include stoichiometric coefficients. .

Fe(s) + Pt2+ (aq)-------------------> Fe2+ (aq)+ Pt(s) 

; iron is oxidised ( 0 to +2) and Platinum  is reduced (+2 to 0 )

The activity series is a table including metals (and Hydrogen arranged from bottom) arranged from top to bottom in decreasing ease of oxidation.

If the cation appears lower in the activity series table the solid metal will be oxidised (i.e the reaction will occur)

Platinum appears lower than iron  in activity series table SO  Pt+2 (aq) will oxidise iron Fe(s)
