Expert Answer

Step 1

Oxidation is defined as process of addition of oxygen or an electronegative element to the substance. In terms of electrons oxidation is the process in which loss of electron takes place. And the substance which gets oxidized is known as oxidizing agent.

Step 2

Species which oxidizes another species present in the solution then these species are said to be strong oxidizing agents than other.

Step 3

When a solution of C is mixed with a solution containing B- ions then the color is changed from red to yellow tha...
