"Use data from the table to explain why chlorine should undergo a redox reaction with water. Write an equation for this.." Can someone explain this question in normal language?? Please...Any help or contribution is very much appreciated thankyou.

Im presuming you have redox equations for the reduction/oxidation of water and an equation for the redox/oxidation of Chlorine. Are you given voltages for the redox equations? If so look at which has a higher voltage.and which has the lower voltage. Write an equation for the species which has a higher voltage as a reduction and the one with the lower voltage as an oxidation reaction. Do the electrons balance? Combine the 2 equations to form an overall equation. A redox equation is where electrons are transferred between two species so think about what is happening in terms of electrons.
