In part c
They add drops of KMnO4 to a solution which contains Fe2+ ions and they ask about the color change

When I read the question
I thought, the color change they want is the color change of the solution but turns out
They want the color change of the KMnO4 ( from the MS)
How can I tell ?

Because you are adding the MnO4 to the solution in the flask, which is Fe2+. At the end it will be pink (Mn2+)
However, it you were to add the Fe2+ to the MnO4, the MnO4 would be purple, and at the end will be pink again (Mn2+).

But the answer in the mark scheme is purple to colorless .
shouldn’t the brown color of Fe3+ overpower any other color anyway ?
