Oxidation-reduction reactions are reactions in which:
A. Protons are transferred from one reactant to another.
B. Electrons are transferred within the same atom.
C. Electrons are transferred from one reactant to another.
D. Oxygen particles must participate.
I hate chemistry, it is just one subject I cannot understand, help please?

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.
Lol I actually put C and got the answer right just now so you're right
