A balanced equation that represents an overall cell reaction is shown. Choose the cell notation which corresponds to the electrochemical cell that is described by this equation.

2H2O(l) → 2H2(g) + O2(g)

i dont get why the answer is this. How can OH- appear in both sides

Pt(s) | OH-(aq) | O2(g) || OH-(aq), H2O(l) | H2(g), Pt(s)
