Why doesn't potassium ion K+ from KMnO4 appear in the following two unbalanced equations: MnO4 + C2O42 Mn2+ + CO2
MnO4 + Fe2+ Mn2+ + Fe3+ ?


A. KMnO4 is not added to either reaction.
B. K+ is a spectator ion and redox reactions are written as net ionic reactions.
C. The presence of K+ would result in a net positive charge in the products.
