Hw. 13.35b n as the moles of electrons

For this question, I understand how you use lnK = nEcell/(0.02596) , but for part b, I got n=1. What in the question tells you that n=2?

n is the moles of electrons transferred, so you're right in getting 1. This problem is on the solutions manual errors document, but I believe the final answer on the corrected solutions is incorrect, although the work leading up to it is right.

That's what I did for all the other ones, so I was baffled when this came up. Thanks for the heads up!
