Answer :

The reactions in which both oxidation and reduction takes place simultaneously are known as redox reactions.

Example: Reaction of ferric oxide with carbon monoxide to form iron and carbon dioxide as shown below:-



In the above reaction ferric oxide (Fe2O3) is reduced into iron (Fe) by losing the oxygen atoms attached to it and carbon monoxide (CO) is oxidized into carbon dioxide (CO2) by gaining the oxygen atoms.
