Question

# Which of the statements about the following reaction are incorrect?$2\text{PbO}\left( s \right)\text{ + C}\left( s \right)\text{ }\to \text{ 2 Pb}\left( s \right)\text{ + C}{{\text{O}}_{2}}\left( g \right)$a ) Lead is getting reduced.b ) Carbon dioxide is getting oxidised.c ) Carbon is getting oxidised.d ) Lead oxide is getting reduced.A ) (a) and (b) B ) (a) and (c)C ) (a), (b) and (c)D ) All

Hint: Gain of oxygen is oxidation and loss of oxygen is reduction. Loss of hydrogen is oxidation and gain of hydrogen is reduction. Loss of electrons is oxidation and gain of electrons is reduction. Oxidation is an increase in the oxidation number. Reduction is a decrease in the oxidation number.

$2\text{PbO}\left( s \right)\text{ + C}\left( s \right)\text{ }\to \text{ 2 Pb}\left( s \right)\text{ + C}{{\text{O}}_{2}}\left( g \right)$
