  1. Louren, are you paying attention to the answers? Please use the correct spelling of chemistry.
    A. H2 has an oxidation state of zero on the left and +1 on the right so it is losing electrons. That makes it oxidized so A can't be right.
    B. If H2 is being oxidized then Cl2 must be reduced and B can't be right.
    C. From A H2 is losing electrons so C can't be right.
    D. If Cl2 is an oxidizing agent, it must be reduced. It is zero on the left and -1 on the right so it is gaining electrons. A gain of electrons is reduction. So D is correct.
