LEO says GER if an element is oxidized it has lost electrons
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Something else while im thinking about it. Oxidization happens at the anode and Reduction happens at the Cathode. You can remember this by Oxidization starts with a vowel and so does Anode O and A So keep the Vowels together. Though this doesn't have any relevance to your question :P.
@sweetburger so it would be answer b?
@jammy987 let me put in quotes what i wrote above
"if an element is oxidized it has lost electrons"
so a would be correct ! thanks
oxidation is loss
reducation is gain
this is referring to electrons
