    Oxidizing agent is something that causes another Element to be oxidized but it's reduced. If it causes the other element to be oxidized it must be reduced in the profess, i.e it gains electrons. Reducing agent is something that causes the other element to be reduced, but is itself oxidized. So it donates electrons to the other element to reduce it, so it becomes oxidized.
