@warpedkitten diatomic elements like F2 and Cl2 have an oxidation state of 0 so remember if your oxidation state goes up that means that electrons are lost oxidation. if your oxidation state goes down that means you've gained electrons and that's reduction

I agree with u @Photon336 So as we can see cl - goes to 0 oxidation state thus it is oxidising. And F2 goes from 0 to -1 state ttus reducing so the answer will be b
