Which of these reactions is not disproportionation?
A Br2 + H2O → HBr + HBrO
B 3ClO− → ClO3− + 2Cl−
C 2F2 + 2OH− → OF2 + 2F− + H2O
D 3I2 + 6OH− → IO3− + 5I− + 3H2O

I think it’s C as Fluorine has an oxidation state of -1 in both of the products.

Since Fluorine is the most electronegative element, in everything besides F₂ its oxidation state is ALWAYS -1.
