Consider the reaction

Question:

Consider the reaction

$\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{SO}_{3(\mathrm{aq})}+\mathrm{Sn}_{(\mathrm{aq})}^{4+}+\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{(\mathrm{I})} \rightarrow \mathrm{Sn}_{(\mathrm{aq})}^{2+}+\mathrm{HSO}_{4(\mathrm{aq})}^{-}+3 \mathrm{H}_{(\mathrm{aq})}^{+}$

Which of the following statements is correct?

  1. $\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{SO}_{3}$ is the reducing agent because it undergoes oxidation

  2. $\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{SO}_{2}$ is the reducing agent because it undergoes reduction

  3. $\mathrm{Sn}^{4+}$ is the reducing agent because it undergoes oxidation

  4. $\mathrm{Sn}^{4+}$ is the oxidizing agent because it undergoes oxidation


Correct Option: 1
