As we learnt in 

Reducing Agent -

A substance that act as a donor of electron is called reducing agent. Reducing agent itself gets oxidised.

- wherein

e.g.2Na(s)+ O_{2}(g)\rightarrow (Na_{2}^{+}) O^{2-}(s)
Na is reducing agent

 

 Clearly the O.S of Carbon is +3 which means it can act as a reducing agent by turning to +4 O.S

\therefore Solution is 4
