Consider the following standard reduction potentials, Au3+(aq) + 3 e– → Au(s) E° = +1.50 V I2(s) + 2 e– → 2 I–(aq) E° = +0.54 V Under standard conditions, A. Au3+(aq) is a stronger oxidizing agent than I2(s), and I–(aq) is a stronger reducing agent than Au(s). B. I–(aq) is a stronger oxidizing agent than Au(s), and I2(s) is a stronger reducing agent than Au3+(aq). C. I2(s) is a stronger oxidizing agent than Au3+(aq), and Au(s) is a stronger reducing agent than I–(aq).
