Why is the element being oxidised a good reducing agent and vice versa?

    Since it is being oxidised, it'll by default reduce some other element, and hence is a reducing agent.

    See, the total charge is always balanced right, if it gets oxidised (loses electrons) , the lost electrons will be added to some other element(hence that element is reduced)
