1. Cl2(g) + 2e + H2O==> 2Cl^-(aq)
although Cl2 reacts with H2O to produce HOCl + HCl OR
I can write two equations to get around that.
Cl2(g) + 2e ==> 2Cl^-
Cl^- + H2O ==> Cl^-(aq)

I don't know what level you are in school so you will need to make the choice of which to use.

3. The rules you need to work on, if it isn't too late, are as follows:
1. Don't get behind.
2. Understand all you can. Ask questions. See the teacher during office hours. Memorize that which you simply cannot understand.
3. Work the problems at the end of the chapter.
4. Study with someone who can help you.
5. Get a tutor if chemistry is an essential course for your major.
6. Shuck the idea that chemistry is only for smart people. That simply isn't so; otherwise, I would have failed.
7. Adopt a positive attitude. If you convince yourself you will fail, you probably will.
GOOD LUCK.
