Copper ions are positively charged. They are attracted towards the plate which is connected to the negative terminal of the battery. As copper ions are transferred to the thin copper plate, this thin pure copper plate must be connected to the negative terminal of the battery. Consequently, impure copper rod is connected to the positive terminal of the battery.

Concept insight: When electric current is passed in this arrangement, copper ions from the solution get deposited on pure copper rod (attached to negative terminal) and copper ions from impure copper rod (attached to positive terminal) are liberated into the solution.
