Stronger the oxidizing agent, greater is the________

Answer: Greater reduction potential 

Greater reduction potential means a greater tendency to reduce itself and oxidize others.

Oxidizing Agent

An oxidizing agent is a chemical species that tend to oxidize other substances, i.e. cause an increase in the oxidation state of the substance by making it lose electrons. Common examples of oxidizing agents include halogens, oxygen, and hydrogen peroxide.

How do we determine the stronger oxidizing agent?

The stronger the oxidising agent, the greater the pull of electrons. As a result, the element with the highest electronegativity will be the most powerful oxidising agent.
