Homework 6K.3

For Homework 6K.3 Part d, I am not sure how to balance the redox reaction. What is being oxidized in this reaction?

In part D, I would say chlorine is being reduced since it is going from a neutral state to -1 in HCLO. I don't know what to do about the Cl2 at the products side though, it seems counterintuitive and would just cancel out with the Cl2 in the reactants.

Cl2 is both the oxidizing and reducing agent in this reaction.

I had no clue how to do this one either. I just assumed that the Cl2(g) on the products side was a typo and balanced the equation assuming they meant to put Cl-(aq) there. The question just didn't make any sense to me otherwise.
