no it act as reducing agent not as oxidising agent !!!!
L E O (Loosing Electrons, Oxidized) = Reducing Agent
G E R (Gaining Electrons, Reduced) = Oxidizing Agent
Process of elimination makes this easy:
Chlorine is missing 1 valence electron of a full outer set
Potassium has 1 extra valence electron; if it looses it, it'll be at a full outer set
Nitrogen is missing 3 or has 5 extra depending on how you look at it.
Sulfur is missing 2 valence electrons of a full outer set
If that wasn't clear which one of these things is not like the others, then I will show you an example of each (sorry @chmvijay , but there are exceptions to the rule)
L E O reaction for hydrogen (hydrogen is stripped of it's electron)
H\(_2\)(g) + Cl\(_2\)(g) \(\rightarrow\) 2 HCl(g)
G E R reaction for hydrogen (hydrogen picks up potassium's extra electron)
2 K(s) + H\(_2\)(g) \(\rightarrow\) 2 KH(s)
By definition. :-)
