Statement-I: In aqueous solution, compounds of Eu+2 are good reducing agents.
Statement-II: Initial members of Lanthanoids resemble aluminium in their chemical reactivity
I) is a very strong oxidant in aqueous solution. But the rate of reactivity is very slow.
II) is negative. Thus Eu+2 is a strong reductant in aqueous solution.
III) Initial members of Lanthanoids resemble Calcium in their reactivity and later members resemble Aluminium in their reactivity.
