question 4b,
in the second equation Cr2O7 2– acts as a oxidising agent and gets reduced.
forming Cr 3+.
Can Cr 3+ also act as an oxidising agent?

Only with species that are stronger reducing agents. For example, it would react with magnesium forming chromium and oxidise the magnesium to Mg2+

There is also the possibility of forming chromium(II) in certain cases.

So it depends on the electrode potential?

question 5bii do all the ions in the both equations go into the solution when we label the diagram?
so for this equation VO2+ + 2H+ + e– V3+ + H2O
we have to include VO2+ 2H+ and V3+ , when labelling the half-cell?

One redox couple goes into one half-cell and the other redox couple into the other half-cell. If they are in direct contact there would be no reason for electricity to flow around the external circuit.
