Question

Li has the maximum value of ionisation potential among alkali metals i.e. Lithium has the minimum tendency to ionise to give Li+ ion. Thus, lithium is 


A
Strongest reducing agent
loader
B
Poorest reducing agent
loader
C
Strongest oxidising agent
loader
D
Poorest oxidising agent
loader

Solution

The correct option is D Strongest reducing agent
The ionisation potential value of Lithium is maximum among alkali metals i.e., its tendency to ionise to give Li+ ions should be the minimum i.e., Li should be the poorest reducing agent. But, Lithium is the strongest reducing agent. This is due to the largest value of hydration energy  of Li+ ions.

Hence, option (a) is correct.
