Help on this free radical substitution question?

The question on my homework is: "Which two substances react together to form potassium propagate?"

Im bait confused on what they mean, as this type of reaction only usually occurs between halogens and hydrocarbons and not metals so im confused...

It's not FRS.
It looks like an attempt to generalise on a neutralisation reaction. Potassium compounds are almost invariably salts.
Instead of an acid it's using a made up generic salt of "propagate" as if it came from propagic acid, or propagoic acid.
