The oxidation state of oxygen in case of OF_{2} is +2.Since electronegativity of oxygen is very high, it shows only negative oxidation state as -2 except in case of OF_{2}  where its oxidation state is +2 due to more electronegativity of fluorine as compared to oxygen.So,it shows +2 oxidation state.
