Can E°cell or ΔrG° for cell reaction

Question:

Can E°cell or ΔrG° for cell reaction ever be equal to zero?

Solution:

E° Cell or ∆r G° can never be equal to zero. The only standard electrode potential which is arbitrarily assigned the value zero is the standard hydrogen electrode (SHE).

Since everything else is measured concerning SHE; the E° cell can never be zero.
