In the reaction PbS + 2H2O2 → PbSO4 + 4H2O, select the option that correctly identifies substance oxidized and substance reduced.

Q.) In the reaction PbS + 2H2O2 → PbSO44H2O, select the option that correctly identifies substance oxidized and substance
reduced.

(a) PbS is oxidized and H2O is reduced

(b) PbSO4 is oxidized and H2O2 is reduced

(c) PbS is oxidized and H2O2 is reduced (d) PbSO4 is reduced and H2O2 is oxidized

(c) PbS is oxidized and H2O2 is reduced

Explanation: Lead sulphide is oxidized to lead sulphate as there is addition of oxygen atom and Hydrogen peroxide is reduced to water as it loses oxygen atom
