    I know it's too late but could someone please help me with this? :3

    Why is it not B?
    Sulfuric acid is a diprotic acid so you might think that it will dissociate twice to give 1 moldm^-3.
    However, second dissociation is weak, so not all of HSO4^- will dissociate.
    So you need a MONOPROTIC strong acid. eg: HCl, HNO3 to give 1 moldm^-3

    Same here, what you got for the masses of fe2+ and fe3+? I think I screwed up that one...

    70-75 most probably

    Question is straightforward, but it just needs more time to write the answer, like those drawing structures...

    Yeah because it oxidised and then reduced.

    Well i wrote nucleophilic addition because iron in the reactants was in Fe+2 ion form. Was it a hydrated ion?

    I thought it was in [Fe(H20)6]2+ form so I swapped out the ligands with 6 CN- and wrote it as ligand exchange.
    The answer for the next part is +1 yeah?

    I wrote +3 because it was a salt of Fe+3, the Fe in bold, with the anion containing Fe itself.
