Oxidation states of P in H4P2O5, H4P2O6, H4P2O7 are respectively
A
+3, +5, +4
B
+5, +3, +4
C
+5, +4, +3
D
+3, +4, +5

Explanation

The oxidation state can be calculated as :

H4P2O5 : +4 + 2x + 5(– 2) = 0 $$ \Rightarrow $$ 2x – 6 = 0 $$ \Rightarrow $$ x = +3

H4P2O6 : +4 + 2x + 6(– 2) = 0 $$ \Rightarrow $$ 2x – 8 = 0 $$ \Rightarrow $$ x = +4

H4P2O7 : +4 + 2x + 7(– 2) = 0 $$ \Rightarrow $$ 2x – 10 = 0 $$ \Rightarrow $$ 2x = 10 $$ \Rightarrow $$ x = +5
