    Down Accepted answer

    1. This is correct just by counting.

    2. We just have to figure out if there is a species that gets both reduced and oxidised in the reaction. This species is Chloride. This is correct.

    3. This is also false. Again, by counting the oxygen oxidation numbers you can figure it out.

    The answer is E.
