I had a discussion with people about this question. The only logical reason is that the question is written down wrong. The correct answer shows that the reduction reaction for this equation is Cl2 + 2e- --> 2Cl-. If this appears on a test for some reason in any similar form I believe you should stick with this method. However, I'm very positive that this is a mistype.
