Consult a reduction potential table:

Recall the mnemonic for redox reactions:

Loss Electrons  Oxidation  Reducing Agent

Gain Electrons  Reduction  Oxidizing Agent

This means the element that gains electrons/reduced is the oxidizing agent while the element that loses electrons/oxidized is the reducing agent.
