8.20  What sorts of information can you draw from the following reaction?

(CN)_{2}(g)+2OH^{-}(aq)\rightarrow CN^{-}(aq) +CNO^{-}(aq)+H_{2}O(l)

Answer-

Carbon shows different oxidation state according to the compound formula. 

here we can clearly say that Carbon is in its +3 oxidation state.

\\(CN)_{2}(+3)\rightarrow CN^{-}(+2)\\ (CN)_{2}(+3)\rightarrow CNO^{-}(+4)

The oxidation state of carbon is increased(oxidized) and decreased(reduced) as well in the product side. So it is a redox reaction and more specifically we can say it disproportion redox reaction.
