    O2 -------------> 2O2- it is gaining 2 electrons so it is undergoing reduction so requires oxidizing agent SO3 ---------->SO42- it is gaining 2 electrons and 1 O atom so it is undergoing reduction so requires oxidizing agent MnO2 ---------> Mn2+ it is loosing electrons so it i undergoing oxidation so requires reducing agent Zn -------> Zn2+ it is loosing 2 electrons so undergoes oxidation and requires reducing agent Hope that helped!!
