Question

Which of the following is the reducing agent in ZnO(s)+C(s)Zn(s)+CO(g)


  1. None of these


Solution

The correct option is C


A reducing agent or reductant is a substance which supplies hydrogen or any other electropositive element or removes oxygen or any other electronegative element. Alternatively, a reducing agent is that substance which itself undergoes oxidation in a chemical reaction.

Here ZnO is reduced to metallic Zn. C is oxidised Thus it is the reducing agent here
