If the E°cell is lower, then E°cell of Cr and Pb can be reduced/cannot be oxidized.
Cr/Cr2+ → E°cell = -0.26 V
Pb/Pb2+ → E°cell = -0.913 V
Inspecting the choices:
Br-, Ca and Co are reduced form so these cannot be OA anymore
Using a table of standard reduction potentials, determine the best answer to the following questions.
