    It's not possible for protons to be exchanged as freely electrons are; they're tightly bound to neutrons in the nucleus. Recall the definition of Oxidation-reduction; a reaction which involves the transfer of electrons between two species. Also recall the oxidation number of a a bonded atom, (number of electrons given to it by another) this is related to Oxidation-Reduction reactions. It's obvious that Oxidation-Reduction occurs between two different atoms, and involves the transfer of electrons. Therefore the answer is C.
