Expert Answer:

 
  1. Fe2O3 + 3CO ? 2Fe +3CO2(Oxidising agent = Fe2O3 , reducing agent = CO )
  2. H2O + F2 ? HF + HOF   (Oxidising agent = F2    )
  3. CuO + H2 ? Cu + H2O    (Oxidising agent =CuO , reducing agent = H2   )
  4. 3Fe + 4H2O ? Fe3O4 + 4H2      (Oxidising agent =H2O , reducing agent = Fe   )
  5. CuSO4 + Zn ? Cu + ZnSO4       (Oxidising agent = CuSO4  , reducing agent = Zn  )
