(i) The product of this reaction is – MgCl2
(ii) The balanced equation for the complete reaction is : -
Mg(s) + Cl2(g) → MgCl2(s)
(iii) In this reaction magnesium is the element which is being oxidised as it is losing two electrons and gets converted to a stable cation Mg2+.
(iv) In this reaction chlorine is the element which is getting reduced as the two chlorine atoms accepts one electron each and gets convert into anion Cl-.
(v) Reduction part of the reaction is : -
2Cl + 2e-→ 2Cl-
