As Paheli wants to deposit silver on an iron spoon. So, the iron spoon should be used as a negative electrode which is possible only if the spoon is connected to the negative terminal of the battery. And the silver should be used as another electrode for electroplating so that silver ions may deposit to the iron spoon.
