• # question_answer 52) In the following questions two or more options may be correct.Which of the following statement(s) is/are not true about the following decomposition reaction?$2KCI{{O}_{3}}\to 2KCl+3{{O}_{2}}$(a) Potassium is undergoing oxidation.                   (b) Chlorine is undergoing oxidation.(c) Oxygen is reduced.                                                   (d) None of the species are undergoing oxidation or reduction.

(a, d)$2\overset{+1+5-2}{\mathop{KCl{{O}_{3}}}}\,\to 2\overset{+1-1}{\mathop{KCl}}\,+3\overset{0}{\mathop{{{O}_{2}}}}\,$ Potassium is neither oxidised nor reduced. It is a redox reaction in which chlorine is reduced while oxygen is oxidised.
