Why is it AgBr+e- ==>Br- + Ag and not just Br + e- ==> Br-?

Also why in the solutions manual does it have AgBr before Br- in the galvanic cell. I thought since it was an anode Br- should go first since it has more electrons and is thus oxidized

I'm also confused. Why can you assume that you there is a Ag cathode and Br anode?

Also, shouldn't AgBr(s) be incorporated into both half-reactions?
