    Which of the following describes an element that is reduced in a reaction? It acts in the reactant that is the reducing agent. It has a decrease in its oxidation number. Cd yields Cd2+ + 2e− Zn + Cu2+ yields Zn2+ + Cu

    Red is when an elment GAINS e'. So if you have Cd yields Cd2+ + 2e− It means that Cd ox.n 0 passed to Cd++ ox.n +2. When you see + it means atom had something less, in this case he had 2è less than Cd 0. So Cd++ GAINS two electrons and become Cd 0.

    you tell me. If an element get reduced whan it gains electrons, and i told you that Cd++ gains two e' to get Cd.
