a. Write a balanced equation for this oxidation-reduction reaction. (In this problem you need not worry about the physical state of the reactants or product.)
b. which reactant is oxidized?
c. Which reactant is being reduced?
d. What is the oxidizing agent?
e. What is the reducing agent?

None are right including the equation. it isn't balanced.
Oxidation is the loss of electrons.
Reduction is the gain of electrons.

O2 is being oxidized
Al is being reduced
Al is the oxidizing agent
O2 is the reducing agent
