How do you figure out the largest E°cell on test #2? I though that you would have to pick the greatest reducer and weakest oxidizer to get the largest E°cell but I got the question wrong. thanks!

The way to determine which species is the best reducing agent is by looking at the reduction potentials. Good reducing agents have low reduction potentials, meaning that they get oxidized and give up their electrons. On the other hand, good oxidizing agents have high reduction potentials, meaning that they are more likely to be reduced and accept electrons.
