Which is the weakest oxidizing agent in a 1 M aqueous solution? (WITHOUT USING REDUCTION POTENTIALS)

Ag+ , H+, Cu2+, or Zn2+??

I'm not sure what to do without reduction potentials!

How do you know? (I Know it's Zn2+ by looking at the potentials; but the question does NOT PROVIDE YOU the potentials. What do you do?) Is there like a trend or what?

Do you remember something called reactivity series?

But the problem is that you aren't given those values! Is there like a trend on the periodic table to determine this?

Reactivity series is something that you should remember - it is about order, not about any exact values.

Periodic table won't help here.
