can someone tell me which of the following elements are expected to be the most easily reduced: Ca, Sr, P, or Cl?

thanks

Reduction is the gain of electrons. In general, electrons are more easily gained by elements from left to right in the periodic table and from bottom to top. So that means ________ is most easily reduced.
